The days are longer and the air is (usually) warmer because it’s officially spring here in the Pacific Northwest. Our winter was mild this year but still gave us a lot of rain, so we are looking forward to some sunshine and color in the upcoming months.
As we look forward to brighter days, we have a few springtime projects in mind, including cute patterns and some new colors available at our store!
Spring Project Inspiration
MY DAISY CROCHET BAG
This vibrant spring bag is made up of daisy granny squares for a quick and easy project you can take with you anywhere. The free pattern created by Garn Studio uses an aran-weight 100% cotton yarn, and a US size 8/H crochet hook (5mm).
We recommend using our Organic Summer Breeze cotton yarn with this pattern. The soft, summery colors are perfect match! Hurry and pick up your favorite shade, this yarn is part of our de-stash sale and when it’s gone, it’s gone.
BLOOM KNIT WREATH
Themed wreaths are a great way to celebrate the transition of seasons. We love this cute spring wreath to decorate your front door or accent any wall space in your home! As a bonus, once you learn how to knit these adorable flowers, you can easily recreate them to add to blankets, hats, tote bags, and more.
JOYFUL JANE KNIT TOP
The details on this top elevate it from a simple piece to one with a playful elegance we’re sure you will appreciate. The pattern includes tips for switching out the yarn, so you can customize this top to fit your style!
We recommend our Flax Botanica yarn for this pattern. A light blend of merino, silk and linen gives this yarn a cooling quality and flowing drape. Great for warmer weather knitwear!
We love the spring colors and the lacy look of this shawl created by Carmen of Annie Design Crochet. It’s made with a fingering-weight yarn for a beautiful drape and an airiness that combines well with warmer spring days. To achieve the light draping look, she recommends using a hook one size larger for the yarn you choose.
We recommend our Galilea yarn for light-weight shawls. Available in a plethora of hand-painted colors, it does the colorwork for you with tonal shifts and speckles. The superwash merino & nylon blend makes this yarn soft yet durable – even washable!
New Product Spotlight
NEW BAE COLORS ARE HERE!
Last month we shared our plans to launch new colors of our most popular yarn! BAE is a ridiculously soft bulky weight yarn that’s made with 100% superfine merino wool. The unique coloring is much more sophisticated than a variegated yarn while also being more punchy than a tweed or a mottled yarn.
