With the promise of spring in the air, my knitting needles seem less like objects necessary for warmth than tools that will offer me a fresh perspective on my wardrobe. Winter will soon be a thing of the past (thank goodness), and the dewy prospect of new life will soon be upon us. Budding plants and spouting seeds aren’t the only new things to look forward to. Spring is a great time to revise and revamp your style by trying trends and pieces you wouldn’t normally gravitate toward.
Knit vests are a great place to start. Whether you’re new to these lovely layers or have a whole closet full of them, rest assured knowing that there are tons of fashionable new ways to wear this stylish accessory.

Another great thing about knit vest patterns is that they’re not as big of a commitment as say, a knitted sweater. Not only do they use less yarn, they work well with fluctuating temperatures. Knit vests are more conducive for variable spring weather as they can be removed with ease and grace.
Not sure how to knit a vest? No worries. With these six easy tutorials, you’ll learn how to knit a vest in no time.

Yarnia Custom Skein
Gifted by: Yarnia
We are giving away one skein of custom yarn from Yarnia to one lucky winner. The deadline to enter is February 5, 2014 at 11:59:59 PM Eastern Time.
Custom yarn: it sounds like a dream come true, doesn’t it? The ability to specify yarn weight, fiber content, color and more is something I’d guess many crafters have fantasized about for years. Yarnia is the first company I’ve come across that actually gives the buyer the ultimate power. If you have a particular project in mind, Yarnia can supply you with the perfect yarn.
Will you be knitting a vest this season?
