As I write this, the ground is snow covered and the wind is chilly, but signs of spring have arrived. Robins are flitting across tree branches in search of berries. Small patches of soil are poking through blankets of grayish-white snow. And after months of freezing weather, it’s hard not to get excited about what’s to come. It’s with this anticipation, that fellow editor Nicola Prybell and I approached this special curated collection from the I Like Knitting archives. Each project expresses the beauty of spring in a different way – through touches of lace, earth-inspired colors and delicate choices of yarn that create projects with incredible drape.
Explore more than 55 patterns that are all ideal for welcoming spring! Start with our cute-as-a-button round up of some of our favorite baby knits—from adorable dresses and tops to the sweetest little romper. Get into the spring spirit with our Down to Earth section, featuring patterns made in varying shades of green. Plus, don’t leave out your wardrobe. Knit yourself some season essentials with the perfect layering pieces that can be paired with your favorite jean jacket or worn solo.
But that’s not all: this updated issue features scarves, lightweight sweaters, cardigans, shawls and more. There’s truly something for everyone in this hand-picked round up featuring some of our spring favorites.
Happy knitting,
Caitlin Eaton
