Knitting for spring

Published on March 5, 2019 3 min read

Ahh spring: longer days, cherry blossom trees, new born lambs, and warming rays of sunshine. It’s impossible not to love spring. Warming up after the winter chill is a complete joy and so is our favorite pastime: knitting. We love knitting in every type of weather, and with spring comes an excuse for new knitting projects. Think, pretty pastel colored knits, versatile shawls, and fun textural stitches. We’ve got you covered with a super selection of spring knitting patterns, and wonderful yarn for all the spring knits you could possibly want to make. Some people do spring cleaning, we encourage spring knitting! Although, come to think about it, perhaps it is time for a stash spring clean...

Spring sweater knitting patterns

Sweaters and cardigans are not just for winter and autumn. We are firm believers that a sweater, made of the right yarn, is the perfect garment to transition you between the seasons. Cover up as dusk settles on a Sunday spring walk, don a cozy knit as you gather friends around a bonfire, or forgo the coat as you step out of the house in your trusty knitted sweater, jeans and sandals combo.
