If you haven’t already, it’s time to spice up your wardrobe with some new spring knitting patterns. Knitting isn’t just for the colder months - there are plenty of lightweight patterns available that make great accessories for spring. Though spring is the herald of warmer weather and blue skies, it has its fair share of rainy days and chilly nights. April showers bring May flowers; with these picture perfect knitting patterns you will be able to enjoy every moment this spring, no matter what the weather looks like. In this eBook, you'll find everything you need to turn your spring into a fun and colorful knitting extravaganza. You are sure to enjoy spring so much more with a gorgeous project on the needles that you can look forward to showing off at Easter. With the bitter cold of the winter months well in the past, your spring knitting can focus on light and lacy patterns. Shawls and light cardigans are knitter favorites for spring, when you can wear them in place of a light jacket. Your hand knits will ward off any stray chills and are sure to look fantastic.
The 9 Free Knitting Patterns Perfect for Spring eBook not only includes free shawl knitting patterns, but you'll also find lacy scarves, handy market bags and totes and even a light blue cardigan that's great for covering up on breezy evenings. You'll find plenty of knitting patterns for both casual and fancy occasions, and what better way to support the green movement than by making your own grocery bag to use at the store. The change to lightweight patterns is a great opportunity to try out a simple lace pattern. You can also try experimenting with lighter yarn. Bulky yarns are fun to work with, but are much to heavy for the warmer weather of spring. Lighter yarns have their own strengths, and create projects that have marvelous definition and intricate stitches. Once you’ve finished knitting your favorites from this beautiful collection of spring patterns, you’ll be more than ready to take on the new season in style!

Shawls are a spring favorite for knitters. You can wrap these stylish confections of yarn around your shoulder for a little additional warmth. For those slightly chilly spring days, a hand knit shawl is the way to go. Bulk up those lace skills by knitting up one of the lovely shawl patterns in 9 Free Knitting Patterns Perfect for Spring. You will absolutely love the end result; shawls are quite enjoyable to both knit and wear. With patterns like the Emily's Circular Lace Shawl (page 5), you will find yourself wanting to knit a storm of shawls. The Emily's Circular Lace Shawl is a quintessential summer shawl; it is delicate enough to be worn out for dressy events, but can easily be dressed down with jeans. Even though this pattern requires four charts to complete, the end result is far worth the effort.
Knit scarves are another great accessory for the spring weather. The right scarf can complete an outfit and provide you with some additional warmth. On days where a brisk spring breeze is blowing, a scarf can make the day perfectly enjoyable. Since knit scarves for spring tend to be lighter, these patterns tend to be more playful with more lacy details and decorative elements. A knit scarf will always provide some warmth, but these lightweight scarves are certainly suited to the varying weather of spring. The Dragon Skin Wrap or Scarf (page 10) is one of the most versatile patterns in this eBook. If you're looking for a shawl that breaks the boundaries of traditional, this is the wrap for you. Whether you decide to make this pattern into a scarf or a shawl, the dragon skin stitch creates an intriguing design that's both feminine and full of attitude. Just looking at this pattern gives you an idea of how spring scarves differ from their winter cousins; these patterns are less focused on warmth and more interested in creating a visually appealing accessory.
Spring is always met with enthusiasm because it marks the re-awakening of the earth; farmers emerge alongside flower buds to start working the earth again. Local farmers markets open up in late spring to offer early vegetables and flowers. One of the best ways to show your support for the earth is to dispense with plastic bags and start using reusable, cloth bags. Knitters are well situated to dispense with the plastic since they can put their skills to use to create a handy tote from yarn. Even if you don’t plan on going to the farmer’s market, you can still use the tote bag patterns in 9 Free Knitting Patterns Perfect For Spring at your regular grocery store, as a work bag or lunch box, or to carry your books in. The Rainbow Market Bag (page 19) is a wonderful pattern that will faithfully travel around the globe with you. Go green in style with this colorful market bag. Leave the paper and plastic bags at home and instead tote around fresh fruit and veggies or whatever you can fit inside with this simple bag. Why not make a few more for your friends to enjoy!
Even if you have plenty of projects already on your knit list for spring, you don't want to miss out on this amazing collection. Make a beautiful felted floral bag for a friend or knit a simple, lacy scarf to add some color to an otherwise plain ensemble. Since you can download this eBook for free, there really isn't anything to lose! Download your free copy now and start creating gorgeous knits for spring.
