With spring right around the corner, I’ve got light and flowing knits in soft-colored neutrals on my mind. Although my own personal fashion preferences have changed over the years (I tend to get tired of certain looks), the bohemian style has always been a constant. Drapey fabrics offer tons of room for creativity and layering options. The laid back chic look is perfect for casual week days as well as dressier weekends. With variable spring weather on the horizon, light and airy layers sound like the perfect remedy. What better way to go boho chic than with a few easy knitting projects? After all, bohemian style is all about being inspired by our natural surroundings. If you’re anything like me, that means a room full of yarn.
Don’t think you can pull off the boho look? Start with something small, like a knit accessory or a knit headband pattern. There are tons of stylish ways to work this trend into your wardrobe without drowning yourself in it. So, without further ado, here are some of my favorite bohemian chic easy knitting projects from AllFreeKnitting.
