1. Bonn Vest + Strawberry Basil Margaritas
A rectangle turned flowing vest thanks to armholes and a wide strip of lace across the bottom, the Bonn Vest is an incredibly versatile layering piece sure to be a pattern the whole group will love.

2. Kittredge Wrapper + Jasmine Spritzers
For a trendy and refined knitting night, pair the Kittredge Wrapper with a classy drink like jasmine spritzers.
Brioche stitch continues to trend hot this season, and the Kittredge wrapper makes this popular stitch attainable for any knitter in your group. This part-cardigan, part-shawl, all-cozy wrapper will become your go-to weekend layer for those chillier spring nights.
3. Monterey Tee + Ginger Shandy
Is your knitting group more of the laid-back, beer-drinking type? Start knitting a fun and simple knit like the Monterey Tee while sipping on some ginger shandy. This lovely, lacy knit tee features a beautiful allover twisted-rib lace motif; the simple construction allows you to relax and knit in a rhythmic pattern. Share some laughs while you sip and knit with this laid back pairing.
4. Darjeeling Shawl + Pineapple Mojitos
Have a knitting group that loves shawls? Cast on the Darjeeling Shawl during your knit night while enjoying some pineapple mojitos. A perfectly light and drapy shawl for spring, the Darjeeling Shawl features ornate Shetland-style lace trim that dresses up a simple garter stitch triangle. Have everyone in your group choose their own color of yarn for a matching wardrobe staple to share.
