Pattern Highlights: March

So many great patterns were released in March - let's hop to it!

Vera Sanon's Camellia MKAL is all finished up, so we were able to finally see the AMAZING finished project. Make this one in Meridian! 

From Steve of Barrington Knits / It Takes Balls to Knit, March saw the release of this wonderful double knit cowl, Barrington 5.0. Knit this one in Cricket for a soft and squishy cowl you'll love to cozy up with! The pattern includes video support for double knitting as well as making and using a knitting thimble.

I know as soon as some of you see this, you'll be struck by Cupid's Arrow and cast on right away! Kaitlin Massey Arteaga released the Cupid's Arrow Shawl shown below; it would be a light and romantic shawl for summer if knit in Cloud. But it can be knit in any weight from Lace to DK. 

I love the cowlette trend, and this is one of my favorite ones I've seen so far. The Clairmore Cowlette is knit in Cricket (so you know it's got the soft squish factor) and it has lots of lace and texture throughout. This pattern is from Corrina Ferguson (who we interviewed on the blog not long ago for her contributions to the Stitch Sprouts pattern booklets).

A quick knit for a wee one might be just what you need for that baby shower coming up, and Two Stix Studios has you covered! The London Baby Cardigan takes a skein or less of Cricket and knits up quickly. 

Another great use of a skein of Cricket would be to knit the Driftwood Scarf by Christopher Bahls. This scarf is knit sideways with a cable pattern running down the center - no cable needle needed

Combine Squishy and Nebula like designer Sue Mitchell did, or use your favorite combo of our fingering weight yarns to knit the Pretty Poppy Cowl. Click through to see more ways to wear this cozy layer!

For something a little lacier, check out Fiber Dreams' Margaret Street cowl. It is knit in Squishy and the pattern includes options for four different sizes. 

Crocheters have a few new patterns to choose from as well. Tian Connaughton has released the Harwinton Easy Lace Boomerang in Squishy.  

And from Elizabeth Kay Booth a lovely top crocheted in Breeze, the Summer Colorblock Top
