March Pattern Roundup

Can you believe March is already coming to a close?

I sure can't. I'm excited for April, but before we get there let's take a look back at some patterns you might have missed in the rush that was March.

Cardigan:

Leap Year Cardigan by Suvi Simola

Something about this cardigan just screams March. Our days are jumping between 50 degrees and 80, and this would be perfect to throw on when the air is just a little too crisp. I love the colors she chose, but I think I'd also need one with a crazy pop of neon.

Pullover:

Erea by Emma Wright

I'm sure you aren't surprised to see this showing up. I first saw it on Twitter when Kate from A Playful Day posted about the collection (she did some of the photography) and I squealed so hard. I want to have this entire outfit and go walking about on mountains looking wind-blown and gorgeous.

For the Head:

Hannah's Courage by Mel Ski

We all have that gorgeous skein of worsted hanging out in our stash just waiting for the perfect pattern. Well, look no further. Gorgeously patterned and designed with a close fit, this hat is perfect for those crisp mornings spent waiting for the bus or walking around the farmer's market. And all of the proceeds go to a very worthy cause. You can read all about it at the pattern description.

For the Feet:

Espresso Macchiato Socks by C.C. Almon

I'm a big fan of CC's sock patterns. And for some reason, even though they are patterned I always picture knitting them in self-striping. Finally she's written a pattern explicitly for self-striping yarn! I'm pretty sure that this will be up for my next pair of socks. Right after I finish the three pairs I have on the needles.

For the Neck:

Sizzle Pop by Lesley Anne Robinson

Brioche seems to be everywhere right now, but I've had no desire to knit it. Until this pattern. I love that the pattern is not just straight columns but involves a gorgeous motif that looks like it could reflect leaves or flowers. It's probably not a true beginner pattern, but when has that ever stopped me.

Honorable Mentions:

Codex Capelet by Carina Spencer

I live in this fantasy world where A) I look good in capes, and B) The weather is actually cold enough to justify it. Just like every year I find myself knitting legwarmers, I've started itching to knit a cape as well. This just jumped to the top of the fantasy wish list. Cables and buttons? Yes please!

Mrs. Weasley's Family Socks by A Homespun House

The name says it all, doesn't it? But I love the idea of a family sock recipe to knit for adult down to baby feet. My personal socks only take about 70-80 grams of yarn, so this would be a perfect way to use up leftovers and have matching mommy/Eggbert socks!
