Lovely lightweight knitting patterns for Spring
Even if it doesn’t feel like it everywhere, spring is here. As the temperatures rise, so does the desire for soft, light, flowy garments to wear. We’ve collected the most beautiful, springy patterns made from lighter weights yarns — no super bulky allowed.
La Primavera Dress by Suzy Sparkles can be made with long or short sleeves, perfect for different seasons. Use a cotton yarn like Schachenmayr Catania for a lightweight option that can transition into spring and summer.
Lavina by Cecily Glowik MacDonald is a beautiful lace tee that can be dressed up or down. The lacy pattern will let some air in in warmer weather, and a yarn like Spud and Chloe Fine will add a touch of luxury.
Scarves and shawls are beautiful, but sometimes you don’t need the added warmth. The Shawl Shirt by Susanne Sommer gives the visual interest of a triangular shawl in a lightweight raglan tee. Use Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light for a feeling of luxury.
One Piece Knit Twice by maddyknits is a cute, open tank perfect for over a camisole in warmer weather. Make it in a lightweight cotton like Online Linie 134 Candy or Schachenmayr Catania Fine for a cool top.
The Vivacious Osney Shrug by Jeni Hewlett is a cute, one-piece item that’s great for spring and summer. Throw it on over a tank or sundress to keep your shoulders covered and warm. Make it with Fyberspates Vivacious 4 Ply.
Persuading Jane by The Restless Knitter is not quite a shrug and not quite a cardigan, but is perfect for warmer weather, especially when you need a little something for a cooler evening. Use a luxurious fingering weight yarn like Madelinetosh Tosh Sock or Spud and Chloe Fine for warmth and comfort.
