Springtime Knitting Inspiration

Posted on 03 April 2019

While most of us knitters yearn for snow days that let us curl up under a blanket with our knitting and a cup of tea, Spring knitting is the perfect opportunity for working on lighter weight projects...or getting a head start on next Fall's sweater!

To celebrate the new season, we're having a Spring yarn sale! Now through Sunday, April 7th, save 15% off all yarn in the shop. Just use the code SPRINGYARN during checkout!
Please note that Tov DK from Woolfolk is not included in the sale.

To get you inspired for warm weather knitting, we've pulled together a few of our favorite patterns that we're dying to get on our needles this season. Let us know in the comments if there are ones that we missed!




Tegna is knit seamlessly from the bottom up in fingering weight yarn. It's lightweight and airy, with beautiful lace detail at the hem. Wear this all summer long over dresses and with skirts or shorts!

The simplicity of the pattern will really allow the yarn used to shine. We love this paired with the gorgeous hues of Union Fibre 4ply.




Soldotna has been popping up all over the knitting world since its release a few weeks ago! It's a quick and addicting knit that you won't be able to put down (speaking from experience!)
This crop sweater is perfect for wearing with high-waisted bottoms or over dresses for a light layer during warmer months.




Dusk Light is a stunning lace shawl, designed to celebrate the more rustic characteristics of some yarns. We would pair this pattern with Le Petit Lambswool for a lightweight wrap to keep you warm on brisk summer evenings.



Mon Manet Light is the perfect lightweight pullover to let the beauty of handyed yarns really sing. Knit in simple stockinette, it can be knit in reversible so that either the knit or purl side is the right side, depending on your preference. We love this pattern for yarns like Sock Lite  or Basic Stella that have such beautiful speckles and colors!

 

ARISU

We first discovered the Arisu pattern thanks to Autumn and Indigo's beautiful version! The capsleeves and somewhat cropped length are perfect for springtime layers. Plus, the lace details are just gorgeous!

 

LIVIE

We've been big fan's of Tamy Gore's patterns for awhile now and love this oversized shawl for cool summer nights. The lace eyelets and stripes in Livie create the perfect combination of pattern and texture!

The beautiful solid hues of Sapling Sock from Cedar House Yarns would be perfect paired with some of the fun speckles of Boon Classic for this pattern!

 

BRUNSWICK

Olive Knits always designs beautiful pieces that are sure to become staples in your closet and Brunswick is no different! The slight colorwork detailing at them hem is beautiful and perfect for beginners who want to dip their toes into working with two colors!

 

PALETA

Paleta combines soft and squishy DK-weight with light and airy mohair with beautiful results! 

Pair this pattern with Berry DK and Berry Mohair from Woolberry Fiber Co. for the perfect summer pullover that you can take with you all year round.

 

SOFT SUNDAY

We knit this pattern over the winter, but it could absolutely transition into a lightweight shawl for the warmer weather we're seeing these days!

Soft Sunday is the perfect project for all those single skeins of fingering weight yarn that you have hiding in your stash. We knit ours in Mars Sock from Nox Yarn Co.

 

MARETTIMO

Marettimo is the perfect opportunity to play around with both texture and color combinations! The lacework creates stunningly textured stripes, while giving you the chance to mix-and-match multiple colors in your project.

 

What are your other favorite knitting patterns for warmer weather? We'd love to hear about them!
