Spring into Spring ProjectsBy 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!
