Are you looking for a new project to knit?

Ok, so you might have seen that Knit Picks has a new collection, Flourish. As you might have gathered, I am a huge fan of Knit Picks' pattern collections. They are always so innovative without being overly complex, mixing classic shapes and silhouettes with modern stitch patterns and construction.

Here's a bit about the collection: "When the sun begins to shine and the flowers bloom, it's time to reach for bright, cheerful colors and lightweight, relaxed garments. This eight piece collection - full of short-sleeved tees, cardigans, and tank tops - has just the right amount of texture and eyelet touches to welcome spring with the perfect design." ~ Knit Picks.

While Flourish is only a 8-pattern collection, the designs are built on a sunny and relaxed theme that will carry you from cold to warm weather... and back again.

Psst... The print book is still on sale for only $11.99. I can't believe the sale is still going on. If you are interested in the collection, GET IT NOW before the sale ends. 

Here are some of my faves from the collection that would fit into my wardrobe:

Calm Tide Cardigan is a top down garter ridge yoke raglan cardigan with 3/4 length sleeves. This is a simple pattern that you can work up in no time.

Whitwell Tee is a lace and garter tee worked flat with stitches picked up for the color and sleeves. This tee is sure to keep your attention with this fun lace stitch pattern.

Covell Tee is a simple lace edged tee worked from the bottom up with 3/4 length sleeves. Stitches are cast-on to shape the sleeves and worked vertically across the arms. This comfy tee is perfect for lounging or going out with hubby and the kids.

Stiletto Pullover is a bottom up lace pullover worked in the round with raglan shaped short sleeves. This pullover is a classic piece that fits easily into any wardrobe.

So, what's your favorite pattern from the collection? Which piece fits into your wardrobe the best that you will become your next go-to piece? Leave a comment below and share.

  1. Cover Tee is my favorite

  2. I'm undecided between the Whitwell Tee and the Stiletto Pullover. They both are lovely, stylish, and look comfortable!

    1. It is hard, right? Either are great options. Make 'em both, lol.
