There’s a lot to love about Spring, but top on our list is its almost perfect temperatures. Spring brings cool mornings, warm afternoons, and golden evenings that just beg us to be outside. The best part of all? Knitwear is still an appropriate wardrobe choice. We love lightweight knits that can transition throughout the day, so today we bring you just that: lightweight knits for Spring. When you plan these projects, consider the fiber you’re using. It might be time to transition away from the warm wools and look for fiber blends that incorporate cotton, bamboo, silk, and linen to compliment the warmer weather.

Use a fingering weight yarn (try a linen yarn to give it some structure) to make one off six sizes the top is offered in.
