This pattern collection from Kennita Tully is a great choice for spring. Tuscan Knits features seven patterns — two tops, two vests, two cardigans and a shawl — inspired by the beauty of Italy and the yarns of Tahki. The patterns use a lot of lace and openwork, which makes them breathable and perfect for the ever-changing weather at this time of year.
They use pretty simple shapes and let the yarn really show itself off, which is nice. I think my favorite is Firenze, a lacy cardigan worked in a fun thick and thin yarn that ends up with a really interesting texture. I also like Lucente, a mesh top that’s a great way to jazz up an otherwise simple outfit. You can check out all the projects on Ravelry.
The ebook retails for $15.95 but I’ve got a free digital copy to give away. For your chance to win, leave a comment on this post by the end of the day next Sunday, April 27. Why don’t you tell me what the weather is like and where you are right now? In Arkansas as I type this it is rainy and 64 degrees. Not too shabby.
