Let’s hear it for Spring! Longer, warmer days, bright sunshine — and lots of great projects to knit! Take a look inside the April 2023 issue of I Like Knitting to see the Spring forecast!
Nothing says Spring like flowers, so why not make a pillow where the flowers are always in bloom? Our Flower Power Pillow makes a bold splash of color with its cheerful flowers and totally 70s retro feel. Knit this pillow in chunky weight yarn using the intarsia method for a cool, groovy look.
Earth Day is in April, and what better way to mark the day than to use up a bunch of your yarn stash? Our Patchwork Earth Blanket pattern combines simple rib stitch with fun blocks of color to create a super-comfy textured blanket. Even better: this pattern is rated easy, and will give new knitters a chance to work in the intarsia technique.
When you head out for your walk, don’t forget to put on your Wayfaring Leaves Ankle Socks. This pattern is rated easy, too, and it’s a great way to dip your toe in the sock-knitting pool. The geometric pattern of these socks will remind you of Spring leaves while you work up this Fair Isle design.
What better way to celebrate Spring than with some mother-daughter sets? Cute, sophisticated, and fun! Our Karinna Mom & Daughter Shrugs feature an easy lace pattern that will make mom and daughter feel fancy-free. The shrug is worked as a flat rectangle and then folded in half. Dress up the day with this delightful shrug set!
Need a fun project for Mothers Day? Make a matching set of Quinn Mom & Daughter Cuff Bracelets. Work these bracelets flat, and use a tiny crochet hook to add bead embellishments as you go along. These would make a great gift!
It’s always sweater weather here at I Like Knitting — we have sweaters for every season! With warmer days on the horizon, work up our Ziggie Tank to have a new favorite layering piece. This pattern’s rated easy, so all knitters are invited to make this versatile and lovely tank.
Advanced knitters will enjoy making our Cerise Tank, with its swirly stitch pattern and square sweetheart neckline. Wear it alone, or layer it with your favorite jacket or cardigan.
For our cable lovers, may we present our Rayanna Cables Top. This intermediate pattern is worked flat from the bottom up and features a patchwork of four different dainty cables on the front. Get out your cable needles and have fun creating this light and lovely top!
The April 2023 issue of I Like Knitting is packed with patterns that are bound to become your new seasonal favorites. Welcome the warming weather with some stunning new projects! Which project will you cast on first?
