Spring, a time of new beginnings… and also sometimes frustratingly fluctuating temperatures.
I love knitting (and wearing) wraps. Lightweight shawls are the perfect accessory to jazz up a Spring jacket and sometimes you still need that little bit of extra protection. These two are favorites of mine as they go perfectly with casual denim looks.
The Coffee Shop Wrap has become a Lion Brand fan favorite. Easy to knit and easy to wear, this simple knit shawl pairs with casual denim looks as easily as it does with dresses.
Big needles make this wrap a great fast project. I love the almost net-like look. And, of course, those accent tassels!
Dreamy and bohemian, this artsy wrap was inspired by the free-spirited nature of the great Stevie Nicks. Drape it over your shoulders, wrap it around your body, or tie it at your waist and transport yourself to the days of Rhiannon. – Two of Wands
While I favored knitting for wraps it seems that crochet wins in the bags department, but I threw in an openwork shawl for you crocheters as well!
The circle bag isn’t just this season’s must-have accessory – it’s a classic shape with timeless appeal that’s sure to be a staple for years to come. The simple construction and sophisticated look will have you whipping these up in every shade of the rainbow! – Two of Wands
I had to start making the Miller Bag as soon as the design from Lakeside Loops came in! I love the interesting shape that is surprisingly simple to create! If you can half double crochet then you can make this bag!
Perfect as a tote for the market, bag for the beach, or simply as an everyday carry-all, this multi-purpose purse is sure to be your go to accessory this Spring and Summer. With a beginner-friendly design, this piece is great for those who are new to crochet or as a quick and simple project for the more experienced crocheter. – Lakeside Loops
Even though this is a warmer yarn with the touch of mohair content, the open stitches keep it breezy for warm weather.
There’s something almost witchy about this wrap. Conjure up some spells while you drape the spider web-like shape over your shoulders like a cape, or wrap it around in front as a lightweight scarf. – Two of Wands
