Cheerful, Lightweight Knits for Spring
Happy March!! March tends to be my favorite month out of the year ~ I love that things are finally warming up a bit, spring is coming, and well, maybe I'm a little biased because it's my birthday month 😄
Because March makes me think of sunshine and flowers, chirping birds, and greening grass, I can't help but share two of my most cheerful, spring-y knitting patterns as the featured patterns for the month. Both designs are one skein shawl knitting projects.
Dancing in the Rain Shawl
by Snickerdoodle Knits
A fun, addicting knit that creates an asymmetrical triangle shape, this shawl features my favorite stitch: the dropped stitch! The result is a drape-y, lightweight knit shawl.
Each section is interesting to knit but easy to memorize, and the sections are repeated multiple times throughout the design. If you're looking for an engaging knit that uses just one skein of fingering weight yarn, look no further!

Spring Meadows Shawl
by Snickerdoodle Knits
A fun, engaging knit, Spring Meadows is a boomerang shaped shawl inspired by the falling rain, greening fields, and new leaves that come with springtime.
It is also a lightweight knit that uses just one skein of fingering weight yarn -- and repeated textures that are engaging to knit. This knit requires a bit more concentration than the Dancing in the Rain Shawl, but sometimes that's exactly what you need: a project that requires a bit of concentration to block out the stress from the day.
