7 Knit & Crochet Projects for Spring

March 15th, 2013

After a somewhat gloomy start to the week here in NYC, I really started to crave spring and things that were bright and cheery.  I also began to think about what my next project will be now that the weather is slowly warming up; so I decided to search for some bright patterns that were perfect for transitional and warmer weather.

Below, I’ve included a few patterns that have definitely got me in the Spring mood.  I simply adore the Child’s Sun Top in Cotton-Ease, and I love the Sunnyside Cowl, which only requires on skein of LB Collection Silk Mohair; it’s the perfect for cooler mornings and evenings. Take a look at the patterns and find some inspiration for Spring!
