Spring is all around us! The changing weather brings with it longer warm days and cool nights, and if you are lucky, more time outside! These projects are perfect for the changing weather, and are extremely popular.

Sequoia Shrug Crochet Sequoia Shrug
Adorable to wear and a perfect garment for changing weather, a shrug is the perfect accessory for spring! While it’s light enough for warm days, it’s warm enough for cool nights.
Stockinette Stitch Shrug Knit Stockinette Stitch Shrug
Here’s our most popular shrug for knitters. This shrug is knit in Nature’s Choice Organic Cotton: so it’s good for the season and good for the earth!
Market Bag Crochet Market Bag
Make this super popular market bag to celebrate the return of farmer markets and fresh fruits stands, and keep using it all year for beach parties, back to school shopping, gifts and more! Our most popular market bag in Recycled Cotton helps you recycle and reuse at the same time.
Little Princess Cardi Crochet Little Princess Cardi
Been longing to try out bamboo? Looking for a light, washable sweater that a toddler will actually want to wear? This little sweater uses a simple pattern and is a fantastic chance to try out LB Collection Cotton Bamboo.
Brimmed Cap Crochet Brimmed Cap
This is one of our most popular hat patterns. The pattern calls for two skeins of LB Collection Organic Wool, but try working it in two skeins of Cotton Ease or Lion Cotton and the result is a perfect hat for keeping the sun off in spring!

     fyi – The Stockinette Stitch Shrug pattern is not linked to the picture, however, it can be found in patterns under this name.  My next project, after the crocheted beach bag–I love crocheted bags!

      The image of the Stockinette Stitch Shrug now links directly to the pattern. Enjoy making it this year!

    If you are making a summer hat it is best to use a light colored yarn, to help deflect the heat of the sun. A dark color, as shown in the photo, will make the head too warm for comfort or safety in the hot summer sun.
