Spring 2018 Knitting Trends to Take You into Warmer Weather
Here at Interweave, we love fashion. And although most of the designs in our knitting magazines are timeless classics, we do stay abreast of trends in the fashion world and incorporate them into our issues. One of the great things about fashion is that there are always a bunch of things trending at once, so if a particular style doesn’t work for you (for example, I don’t love all the sheer stuff that’s so popular right now), there are plenty of other knitting trends to choose from!
If you’re searching for some spring style inspiration, look no further! We’ve gathered up a few of our favorite spring trends and found knitting patterns to match them. Read on to find a trend that works for you, then cast on for a fashionable garment or accessory for spring and summer!
Inspired by roses and their foliage, this trend relies on luscious hues of pink and green. Mix several shades of claret, rose, and pink-peach in a single garment or add touches of celadon and moss to these floral hues to grow your own garden. Bring some rose-colored designs into your wardrobe with the Mount Kailash Wrap, the Cherry Blossom Cardigan, or the Vinyasa Cardigan.
Go with the Flow
Hot on the heels of fashion’s popular “athleisure” trend, most European and New York designers are showing garments with lots of ease and drape. Knitters can achieve this relaxed look by using needles one or two sizes larger than those called for on the yarn ball band or by choosing drapey silhouettes. To get on this trend, try the Dartmouth Tunic, the Waves of Peace Tunic, or the Marblehead Poncho.
To a Tee
Just in time for warmer weather, Fashion Avenue is featuring comfy, sporty basics. Expect simple straight lines, bold stripes, and springy, lightweight knits. Think “borrowed from the boys” but with a feminine touch, such as a soft neckline or delicate trim. Try this super-fun trend with the Sunbird Top, the Metalmark Top, or the Blocker Tank.
