It's officially Spring, but contrary to popular belief that doesn't mean it's time to pack those needles and hooks away. No ma'ams (And sirs? Are there any sirs here?)! Thanks to open-weave stitches and light-weight yarns like Country and Spa, 'tis STILL the season to knit and crochet. Here are a few Caron project suggestions that are the perfect fit for warmer weather!
L-R: Row's O' Ruffles Dress, Sophie Poncho, Lacy Jacket, Flopsy Hat, Floral Cami, Doris Scarf, Dolphin Bay Baby Top, Botanico Top & Jolimar Skirt.
