While it feels like we’re in winter’s terminal holding pattern, spring really is creeping around the corner. Some of us may still be cranking out those warm and snuggly accessories (it’s a prayer to the god of snow days, right?), but we’re itching for warmer temps and cooler knits. Goodbye parka/cowl/hat ensembles, hello tees and sunglasses.
There are a whole bunch of inspiring and accessible patterns in the newest round of publications, and we’ve got the (spring) yarn for the job. Remember how we loved the Spring 2015 Interweave Knits? Try the Second Story Tee in Hempathy. This easy tee features textured striping to keep it interesting. With the new range of colors that just arrived, this project could go from an understated neutral to a sophisticated, bold conversation starter.
If you’ve perused the new Knitscene, you may have noticed the Coburn Pullover. Knit it up in Berocco Indigo, and this midweight pullover would keep you comfortable during the chilly spring mornings and evenings. The cool shaping and mistake rib patterns in the yoke elevate this basic sweater shape into something you’d reach for time and again.
If you stopped by the this past weekend, you may have noticed the arrival of a new fingering base from Periwinkle Sheep, Watercolors. This springy and particularly soft yarn would pair excellently with the Polaris pullover in the most recent issue of amirisu. This sweater would also work up nicely in Spud & Chloe Fine, with its silk and wool blend.
Not technically a spring yarn pick, but also worth a mention, the One Way Tee from Interweave Knits would be fantastic in either of Neighborhood Fiber Co.’s DK bases: Studio DK (100% Superwash Merino) or Cobblestone DK (BFL/Silk/Cashmere). Please, tell me that sample color doesn’t look like Belair.
