Happy Friday, Crafters!
It has been absolute bonkers weather this week. In the 30s one day, pouring rain another, and now it’s 75°F and sunny! That made choosing this Freebie Friday’s FREE PATTERN rather difficult, but I think you’ll be pleased with the result! These absolutely adorable knit fingerless gloves have flowers on them making them perfect for a freezing day in May (and you know that’s bound to happen).
You can find these fingerless gloves and other fun floral knits in Martin Storey’s new knitting book, Floral Knits coming to bookstores on Tuesday, May 6th!
Inspired by lush garden flowers there are 25 gorgeous knitted garments and accessories from top Rowan designer Martin Storey. The projects offer a mix of designs, some with applied flowers and others with floral designs knitted into them, others with the designs embroidered on top. The wearables range from sweaters, boleros and shrugs to scarves, bags, and berets. There is also a small bouquet of delightful home accessory projects, like cushions and throws so you can also festoon your home with spring blooms. Photographed on location, the stunning full-color pictures are fresh and pretty, and the styles are right in tune with current fashion trends. All the projects are made with yarn from Rowan, some of the bestselling yarn in the country.
Keep cool! Or maybe warm? Who knows – either way you’ll be stylish and crafty!
Can’t wait until Tuesday? Pre-order Floral Knits now!
