Spring into Spring Projects

By Erin Burger – 2 Comments

It’s a common misconception that crochet is mainly for winter accessories and afghans. With the varying yarn weights, types and a vast array of colors, your Spring projects might very well turn out better than your winter ones!

  • Experimenting with different types of yarn: DK and Worsted weights acrylic yarns are great, but branching out into using more unique fibers brings a totally different ‘flavor’ to your everyday crocheting. Find a cotton/satin or cotton/silk mix (these types are often found in fingering weight) and use it to make The Timeless Scarf.
  • Try your hand at crocheting garments: Shawls, shrugs and boleros are great Spring projects! A lot of these garments are designed for a chilly, but not wintery, Spring evening or morning. Check out The Yuet Shawl or The Convertible Lace Shrug and get started on a fun spring garment.
  • Make some Easter Crafts: Fill your childrens easter baskets with these fun projects: Easter Crochet Patterns.
  • Change up your usual colors:No more golds, teals and burgundies! Fill your yarn containers with duckling yellow, baby blue and bubble gum pink. Make a baby blankey with fun colors, lightweight yarn and this fun stitch: Pop-Out Flower Stitch and enjoy!

I’m looking forward to not just the weather of Spring, but the projects too. Share your own Spring projects with us in the comments below!

    I need to start my Holiday crocheting soon. Dreading it some days. Have to make your easter basket with eggs though!

    I buy the plastic Easter eggs and crochet thread covers for them. Your bunny and carrot are really cute….might make them for a gift if I can. So many patterns….so little time. :D
