Spring Cloths

There's no denying that springtime is here. It's getting warmer by the day and the trees are starting to bud. So of course I had to design another cloth set. It was the perfect excuse to head out and buy some more beautiful cotton colors. I swear these look like candy.

I always tend to have a favorite design in each of the sets but I just can't pick one this time. From designing the charts to knitting up the finished cloths each one was perfect. I hope you will enjoy them just as much as I did.

I've been a busy bee myself these days. I have lots of patterns in the works at the moment. Between that and being a full time mom I'm a bit overwhelmed. But everyday gives me the creative outlet to have fun and enjoy every moment of parenting.

Lily's Sugar'n Cream Solid:

Sun- 00073: Sunshine (Yellow)
Butterfly- 00093: Soft Violet (Purple)
Umbrella- 00083: Cornflower Blue (Blue)
Flowers- 00046: Rose PInk (Pink)

Lion Cotton Solid:
Tree- Avocado Article: #760-134

Peaches & Crème:
Bumble Bee- Camel #89

This pattern is available as a PDF download and priced at $3.25. There are six cloth patterns in this set. You can purchase this pattern if you are a Ravelry member by clicking the "Buy Now" button below the pictures. The Sprin Cloths are also available in my Pattern Store here as a Ravelry Download. There are 4 pages total and the download is sized at 3.5MB. If you have any questions about the pattern or payment options, please feel free to contact me via email at or on Ravelry: KristenKnits.

Heres a link to the pattern page on Ravelry!

I made each written pattern with a corresponding chart for the dishcloth. From the sets that I've already made, I've managed to get about 2-2½ cloths out of one ball of Lily's Sugar'n Cream Solid Yarn. Though you can use any kitchen cotton you prefer.

At the moment I'm currently working on Easter cloths and a spring bag design that is turning out beautifully. I can't want to finish the pattern. Hoping everyone is well and enjoying the "better" weather we've been having.

**I just love the ideas that some of you are having with these and posting on Ravelry and twitter. I think using a bigger needle lets say a US #6 or 7 and any worsted weight yarn that can be blocked would make a spectacular baby blanket. I might have to pick up some soft wool and try this myself. I know someone who's expecting this summer and it would be perfect!**

These look gorgeous! Shame its not spring in my part of the world at the moment :(

I love your patterns. I purchased the Christmas group hoping to get a jump on the holiday gifts, but I can't for the life of me make mine look as good as yours. My backround never looks as flat an even as yours. Maybe it's my blocking. Any suggestions?

Kris said...

I had posted a few tips and tricks in the Valentine's Day post about blocking and making your stitches look flat so you might want to look there. After knitting the cloth I would suggest stretching out the cloth under running water for awhile. Then gently wringing out the excess water and laying the cloth flat and pressing down the stockingnet stitches to dry. After time with all the washing and drying the picture will seem to stand out more as well. Hope this helps a little.

You're right ~ they *do* look like candy! OMG ... these are *so* gorgeous. Thank you! I especially love the umbrella one! You are very talented! Thanks for all you do!

Cathy said...

As always, these are just gorgeous! I love all of your patterns :)

Suzanne said...

Thank you so much! I must have checked your site 6 or 7 times throughout the day.

Right before putting the kids to bed, I thought, I'll check one more time and there the Spring Cloths were! Yippee!

I have purchased all the sets except the Halloween ones, and knitted them all up, too!

Now you are teasing me with Easter cloths. I can't wait! I love your designs. Thank you so very much!

Beautiful! And, a day early! I really was excited to see the post up! Already downloaded and printed the patterns...just a smidge to finish on the large shamrock cloth and then I'll be starting on this set...hard to pick which one to start with though! And Easter??? Really, you're doing an Easter set? Yippeeeee!!!

Aunt Kathy said...

Kris as usual you have me wanting them all. And really can you give me tips on your awesome photo skills, WOW.

Madame Hook. said...

Kris, once again these are without a doubt the most beautiful things I will clean plates with :)

When I grow up I want to be a knitter like you. (now thats not stalkerish at all hahaha)

VictoriaG said...

Hmmm...a baby blanket...what a great idea! Now I'm thinking that I could somehow use crochet between the blocks.....oooooh I think it would work!

Anonymous said...

Really love what you invent for us!
Will you please think of some cute cloths for Mother's Day too??

Thanks so much!

Anonymous said...

Kris, I am so glad to see spring cloths! Can't wait to get started on them!!

Anonymous said...

Another great set! In your *spare* time have you ever thought about doing a baby set of little cloths?

VictoriaG said...

A baby set, yes, I'd be all over that!

Anonymous said...

Great as usual! Thank you so much. I love, love, love them!


Rene' said...

I LOVE your patterns! I purchased the Spring set and was so excited to finish one washcloth in a day! I knit kinda slow and love projects I can do quickly. These cloths are SO cute!!! Now I'm starting on the umbrella cloth.

I've also just purchased the Autumn set - my kitchen is decorated in pumpkins and autumn leaves so these will go perfect!

Thanks for these beautiful patterns!

Anonymous said...

Love this set, finished them all in one day! Delightful as always! Looking forward to an Easter set. Found the perfect yarns for the Thanksgiving set, and though the season isn't right, will be whipping those up too! I agree, a baby set...I'm going to be a Grandma again in July...

Soo, pretty. I love your patterns.

Angela said...

Wow these are absolutely gorgeous!!!!!! I'm not much of a dish cloth knitter, but these are sure to turn me into one!

Lisa Souza said...

So darned cute. I think that hand knit washcloths are the BEST. I treasure the ones that I have and they are so much nicer than store-bought.

char said...

Help. What about row 12 of the butterfly spring cloth. I am a fairly new knitter and I am not sure what to do.

Kerry said...

I love the patterns. The pattern for the butterfly cloth in the spring cloths is missing row 12 in the written portion, though.
