Spring Crochet Patterns
Whip out your crochet hooks because it’s time for another issue from the ever so fabulous Crochet Foundry Magazine! The theme of this issue is “Here We Grow”, so think of garments that you’d wear to a Garden Party or a Spring Brunch with friends. As always, the Crochet Foundry team brings their A-game, as these Spring designs are jaw-dropping.
The issue contains spring crochet patterns for nine garments, three accessories, and a home decor project! The designs showcase beautiful color tones that range from pastels, grey, and navy. And as always, the garment designs are all size-inclusive too! Check out all the different designs below!
Calla Lily Cardigan
My crochet design for this issue is the Calla Lily Cardigan, which is your one-stop for cozy and stylish! It’s perfect for sunny Spring days and crisp nights. Versatility is key to this crochet cardigan, as you can wear it for almost any occasion. From casual errands around town, to the office, or to date night, this cardigan is here for you. Not only is it sure to win you dozens of compliments, but it is a simple and meditative project. Perfect for any skill level!
My goal was to create a simple, drapey crochet cardigan that has a very classic Spring look. I find that I gravitate towards designs with simple stitch patterns because I like the meditative, repetitive nature of crocheting the same stitch for an entire garment. If I do a complicated stitch pattern, then I can’t watch TV while I crochet and that would take out all the fun for me! LOL. So the Calla Lily Cardigan definitely falls into the category of “simple, meditative project”.
The yarn I used for the Calla Lily Cardigan is WeCrochet’s Palette. It’s a stunning fingering weight yarn that comes in SO. MANY. COLORS. I’m not kidding, there are over 150 colors, so you’ll have no problem finding your favorite color. It’s 100% Peruvian Highland Wool and working with it was a dream. I was impressed by the fact that it didn’t split at all, which is super important when working with a thin yarn like this. The drape from this yarn is also fantastic, which is why I thought it would be perfect for the Calla Lily Cardigan, as drape is what that design is all about.
Crochet Hook & Stitches
I used a 3.75 mm Furls Alpha Series in Cocobolo for this design. The hook is so light and really glides through the yarn. Out of all the Furls crochet hooks I’ve used, this one was by far the lightest. For a project like the Calla Lily Cardigan, I think a light hook really helps with the small stitches. If you’ve never used a Furls hook before, check out my blog post here comparing 3 different types of Furls hooks.
The Moss Stitch was on full display in the Calla Lily Cardigan. The Moss Stitch has become a personal favorite of mine because it’s an incredibly simple stitch (it consists solely of single crochet stitches + chain spaces) that creates such a luxurious, drapey fabric. If you also like the Moss Stitch, check out my Bahama Breeze Cardigan!
