6 Spring Sweaters for Fickle Weather

It seems a bit early to be talking about spring knitting projects, especially with the recent winter storms on the east coast. If you’ve been in the path of the storm, we wish you safety and warmth. To bring you some joy and something to look forward to, here is a glimpse at some projects in knitscene Spring 2018.

The Spring Layers projects were designed to round out your wardrobe with transitional garments for the cooler days of spring as winter slowly fades (and then returns, and then fades again). These six spring sweaters feature lace, lightweight yarn, and some pretty cool design features. Which one will you knit this spring?

1. Provence Wrap Sweater by Karin Wilmoth

Yarn: Queensland Collection United

The Provence Wrap has an interesting, unique two-panel front. There are two pieces, one lying on top of the other and going in opposite directions. They don’t connect in any way, so there is a flexibility and openness to the pullover.

2. Bonn Vest by Amy Gunderson

Yarn: Fibra Natura Whisper Lace, distributed by Universal Yarn

This vest also has a really cool feature that you might not notice at first glance. It’s actually just a rectangle with armholes, so you can wear it how we styled it in photography, or you could could wrap it around your neck and wear it like a scarf! I love knitting ingenuity like that.

3. Palouse Top by Cheryl Toy

Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Alegria, distributed by Fairmount Fibers

Ah, the Palouse Top! The semi-solid green yarn has such a springy vibe to it, and the feminine lace neckline and hems paired with the A-line shape make this great as a layering piece or all on its own.

4. Cherry Blossom Cardigan by Kephren Pritchett

Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light

This is an everyday cardigan that you’ll never get tired of wearing. It goes with everything, and you can layer it over a tank top when it’s warmer, or a long-sleeved shirt on cooler days. It’s also super lightweight, so you can carry it anywhere.

5. Cotswolds Sweater by Laura Hulslander

Yarn: HiKoo Kenzie, distributed by Skacel

This sweater is kind of like a really pretty mullet—business in the front, and a party in the back! Okay, that was a pretty bad metaphor, but it is really cool that the front is all in stockinette stitch and the back has an allover lace pattern. A very breathable knit!

6. Savannah Pullover by Angela Hahn

Yarn: Berroco Elba

A simple spring sweater, the Savannah Pullover is a low maintenance, wearable staple. It’s got a hint of lace on the side, raglan sleeves, and is mostly in stockinette stitch. It’s a casual piece that you can wear when you are on the go or enjoying some time outside this spring.

Let us know what you’re planning on knitting this spring. What yarn are you using? What colorway?
