Spring has almost sprung and it’s time to put the chunky yarn down and pick up the cotton DK’s and, dare I say it, 4 ply! I’ve been looking through some beautiful spring / summer designs to get our teeth into and found some, quite simply, inspirational knitwear that I think you will all love.
The Eastbound Sweater by Courtney Kelley is a stunning gansey style sweater which has been reinvented. A wide upper body and drop shoulder sleeve makes loose fitting garment, perfect for lounging and ideal for the spring months to keep off that slight chill in the air .
Artesian is one of my most favourite shawls. It is designed by Rosemary (Romi) Hill and is a triangle shawl with asymmetrical sections of lace intercepting along the edge. It’s definitely on my spring knit list.
Tove is a beautifully elegant piece by Amy Christoffers. The vintage style eyelet lace creates such a timeless piece and perfect for the coming months. This tee is worked flat and stitched up at the end. Do you want to know the best part? It’s free from Berroco!
The Abra Alba Wrist Warmers by Matilde Skår are a cute little pair of fingerless gloves great for adding colour to your spring wardrobe. With a simple stranded colour work edging in a scallop detail, these gloves can make you dream of sandy beaches or whisk you off to sea purely by the colour choices you make. Oh, it’s a free pattern too!
Pressed Leaves by the ever talented Alana Dakos just screams spring to me. The growing leaves reminding you that the trees are coming back to life and the slouched beret style keeping off the last throws of winter frost. A beautiful accessory for any wardrobe.
Thyme by Louisa Harding is a vintage style shrug reminiscent of Pride and Prejudice or Sense and Sensibility. With the gorgeous lace leaves running around the edges and the ageless (Thymeless!) style, this is attire sure to turn heads.
I want to make everything from this list although finding the time to do it before this spring is going to be hard! Bring on the warm weather though. I’m definitely ready for it!
