Spring seems to still be deciding whether it’s going to show up this year but as time is marching on we’re busy thinking about what we might be knitting this Easter.
We have a few fabulous Spring knitting projects for you:
Starting with the pièce de résistance our special edition Spring Wreath Kit has just launched and look at how spectacular it is! We’ve designed this especially to be brought out and displayed for Spring & Easter, using the freshest and most colourful of our yarns, including a huge selection of our limited edition ones too! Also, who doesn’t love pom poms!? It’s really simple to make but will bring maximum impact for your door or table display.
Moving into clothing, it’s definitely not warm enough to give up the jumper just yet so we’re thinking maybe the super cool Head in the Clouds Sweater. This knit kit was inspired by hot air balloons because of the incredible balloon-like sleeves. It is oversized, slouchy and such a dream to wear! What colour combo will you be rocking this Spring?
Now this one is a real cutie. The ‘Hop to it’ Bunny Bonnet for bebe’s. You’ll see our very own little Livi is modelling it. It is super adorable and available in four different sizes, from newborns to 18 months+. It’s a slightly more difficult knit so has been marked for an intermediate knitter and can be made up in a couple of hours. Using our softest merino yarn, the bonnet has a soft rib, which sits gently against teeny-weeny faces.
Not strictly Spring/Easter but we thought with potential to be doing a little more cooking over the Easter break (we’re thinking like chocolate based treats mainly) the ‘What a Dish’ cloth set might be handy. This is suitable for beginners and is made using the recycled Big Cotton yarn and consists of a great textured dishcloth and a soft and sumptuous tea towel. You might even tempt people into washing up with these gorgeous knits!
Finally, the Weekend Sweater would be perfect for mooching around in this bank holiday weekend! It’s oversized with a high v-neck and super long cuffed sleeves for ultimate comfort. Again, it is a little bit trickier so is suitable for an intermediate knitter and will take around 4-12 hours to make. Finished with a drawstring waist and optional pouch pocket. You can even add a colour pop to your kit to edge it all in a complimentary colour. How fancy!
We hope that gives you a few Spring knitting ideas for the next few weeks and don’t forget to tag them on our brand new Instagram account @laurenastondesignsstudio
