New Spring Knitting Patterns!

February in Colorado is almost over, and that means that some days feel like winter and some like spring. It’s all very confusing, and it’s probably going to go on like this through May. I am comforted by the addition of new spring knitting patterns to the Interweave Knits archives. Knits Spring is our most recent issue, and it’s full of fun projects to help us slowly transition back to warmer weather. Check out the full preview here!

The stories in this issue are called Spring Thaw, Logic & Proportion, and Tea & Macarons. Spring Thaw features projects made from amazing yarns full of character that come from special places like Catskill Merino Sheep Farm in New York and Starcroft Fiber Mills off the coast of Maine. This story features hardy yet feminine shawls and sweaters that are perfect for making the transition like the one we are experiencing in Northern Colorado.

The Logic & Proportion story is full of interesting construction and shapes. It features a cowl, socks, and a couple of colorful home items for sewing and relaxing.

I love the Slippery Slope Socks by General Hogbuffer!

I love the Slippery Slope Socks by General Hogbuffer! I am definitely going to knit myself a pair of these.

The final story, Tea & Macarons, is a lovely tea time story that includes coasters, trivets, doilies, a couple of sweaters, and sweet treats! This story was a learning opportunity for our team, as it was originally named Tea & Macaroons, and our project editor Laura Hulslander informed us that macaroons are indeed different from macarons. The treats featured in this story are in fact macarons. Who knew?! The things you learn working for a knitting magazine!

I love the shots of the studious Caldecott Jacket by Quenna Lee in front of the colorful bookcase of Knits graphic designer, Debbie Long!

I hope you enjoy this issue of Knits. The team really enjoyed working on it from start-to-finish, and it’s a special issue to us. So, until it’s time to break out the shorts and head out for adventures in the fresh spring air, go ahead and settle in with one of these projects to knit in the meantime. Spring will be waiting for you when you are finished!

Happy spring knitting,
Hannah Signature
