Yes, it’s easy to enjoy cool winter days and nights snuggled up with a warm drink and cozy knitting project. But, the warmer months have something to offer knitters, too: warm days and nights lounging with a refreshing drink and relaxing knitting project.  

Spring and summer are perfect for those knitting (and crochet) projects that you just want to do for fun. Perfect for gathering with friends and catching up while working with different yarns that may have been overlooked during the colder months. 

Here are some MADISON MARIE project ideas to keep you knitting all spring and summer long:

The Evelyn | knitting pattern

The Evelyn top is a sleeveless mock neck knit pullover with a cropped fit. Inspired by vintage 80s/90s fashion, but still modern with the use of simple stitches, shaping, and pick up and knit. Work it up and wear it with your favorite jeans. 

The Hadley | crochet pattern

The Hadley pillow is a modern, boho style pillow cushion with an oblong rectangle shape and fringe detail. Perfect pillow to accent your home decor and easily adds texture to your space.

These types of projects not your thing? Spring and summer are also perfect for working on those projects that you know will take some time to finish – like oversized sweaters and large blankets. You can tackle these projects ahead of time so they are ready for you (or a loved one) to enjoy when fall and winter come again. 

The Aurie | knitting pattern

The Aurie sweater is a simple and relaxing to knit jumper with an oversized fit. Perfect if it’s your first time knitting a sweater or if you want a simple sweater project that works up quick with basic stitches and shaping. Inspired by cozy loungewear and that favorite sweatshirt you love to layer.

The Leon | crochet pattern

The Leon throw is a modern, minimalist style chunky throw blanket with elegant trim detail that's relaxing to crochet. Simple design that easily adds texture to your space and also makes a beautiful handmade gift.
