My knitting mojo kicked in late this year. Usually I'm busy with projects in the winter months but get tired of stitching once Spring starts to arrive.

This year, I didn't do much knitting until March. When I did pull out the yarn and needles, I was inspired by the changing seasons and was drawn to bright green yarn and leafy patterns!



I used a Malabrigo worsted weight yarn in the lettuce colorway. The pattern is called Saroyan and is available on Ravelry.



This was a fun project - it was simple enough but the leafy lace design kept it interesting. I also love working with this yarn because of the slight color variations.

Happy Spring!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I love this so much! It is perfect for those cooler Pacific NW days/nights. The pattern is just beautiful.

Cheesy! Yes, HSG! My favorite color Smiley.

Thanks for all the kind words. It really is a fun project to knit and the pattern is free.

I love Malabrigo yarns!  That is a lovely bright Spring choice, and thanks for sharing the pattern source.  You did a great job, and I love that leaf edging - I think you inspired my next project!

Thanks, All! Hopefully it will be warm enough around here to not require a shawl soon but in the meantime, this should help ensure a warm spring neck Smiley.

Your scarf is simply beautiful! Thank you for sharing it with us. I went to Ravelry and snagged the pattern. It might be enough to get my sluggish knitting gene going.

Craft on,
Petra
