Spring Pattern Roundup

Posted by Allison Barnes on
Spring Pattern Roundup

Warmer weather is arriving and while I’m excited to shed warm winter layers, I still love creating lovely things to wear and adorn my space with. I’ve collected some of my favourite spring project ideas, including some of my favourite patterns (like the Ripple Bralette) as well as new projects that would be wonderful for home and on the go!

What are you planning to make this spring? Tag #allisonbarnesyarn in your projects - I’d love to see what you’re making!

Livi Top - YNIK Designs

I love this sweater pattern by Paulina - and the pattern is available in sizes XS to 5XL with options for sleeves and the length of your choice. Paulina describes the design as “the “ripped stitches” are made to contrast and break the classic concept of the raglan ‘perfect’ top.”The Livi top is meant to be cute and traditional ‘ripping”’away with the norms of the perfect construction, breaking away the classic, to leave space for this grungy classic crop top.”

Ripple Bralette by Jessie Maed Designs

This pattern has been so popular - and for good reason! It’s size inclusive and SO DARN COMFY. Whether you wear it on its own or under a loose top, it’s a great soft option for comfort. Knit it neutral, knit it bright. I think this pattern gets a lot of buzz for all the right reasons.

Rose City Rollers - Mara Catherine Bryner

When people ask me about my sock pattern recommendations, this is always one of my favourite suggestions. It’s really accessible for beginners and a quick knit for experienced sock knitters. It’s a nice roll top ankle sock and when paired with a fun yarn, so perfect for summer wear!

Rift - Jacqueline Cieslak

I never get tired of seeing variations of this classic pattern! The Rift pattern offers inclusive sizing, a loose boxy shape, and OPTIONS. We’re talking two neckline styles, optional bust darts, short or long sleeves, and custom bicep fit.

Reusable Produce Bag - Cintia Gonzalez

Ready for the farmers’ market? It might look a bit different in pandemic-times, but however you’re getting your produce, there’s something so satisfying about seeing it gathered together in a reusable drawstring bag. Crocheted with cotton yarn, these are stretchy, strong, and convenient to wash. When it feels a bit too hot to hold a project on your lap, these are a great way to make something handy without a lapful of yarn.

French Market Bag - Alexandra Tavel

Constructed from a large net square, this intermediate crochet pattern makes a durable and lightweight market bag that you can toss into your bag or trunk of your car. Convenient and stylish, it’s a great eco-conscious swap for plastic shopping bags!

Sakura Face Scrubbies - K.A.M.E. Crochet

When it gets hot out, sometimes all I want to do is clean my face with a refreshing cleanser or toner - these crochet face scrubbies stitch up quickly, eliminating the pile of cotton pads in the bathroom.

 Scrap Yarn Basket - Cintia Gonzalez

Do you have a pile of yarn scraps accumulating? Me too! This crochet basket is a great stash buster - and it looks great even if you think all of your yarn ends are going to clash.

For - Hooked on Sunshine

This crochet blanket pattern is being released in stages weekly - like a crochet-along! I love the beautiful details in this pattern and how it looks with these subtle colour pairings. With picnics and outdoor socially distanced gathering season upon us, I think this would be a stunning treat for afternoons in the sun.
