Friday Pattern Spotlight: Spring is in the Air!
April 11, 2014 by Tina Sanders
I don’t know about all of you, but I love spring and for a few of you it has been a long time coming. This time of year in Phoenix is quite wonderful, especially in the early mornings and evenings when the air is cool and crisp, making it perfect for light pieces for layering.
Today I want to share a few lovely patterns to get you into the mood for knitting and crocheting for spring, and even summer. All of these designs use breathable and cool fibers such as cotton, cotton blends, hemp blends or linen blends.

One project I’m considering is Cottesloe by Lisa Richardson that is published in the Pure Linen Collection by Rowan . I purchased several skeins of Hempathy from a sale bin at Jessica Knits not knowing what I would do with many of the single skeins. I think this is the perfect project and will tackle it in a month or so.

Until next time, happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting!
