Knitter’s will happily take any excuse to knit, and holidays are always a great excuse for any number of things, so here’s some Easter knitting inspiration.
Easter decor is all about color, and conveniently enough the Macaroon Value Pack gives a wonderful range of delightful pastels in our colorwork master yarn, Palette. Get the perfect palette for your Easter knitting shenanigans, 25% off! Here is the smallest fraction of the delightful Easter treats you could make.
Decorations: Eggs and Stockings
You are probably familiar with the traditional American easter eggs (complete with dye pellets and those wire things that require constant re-bending to keep them a useful shape), but if you’ve never seen the Ukrainian traditional Pysanka, do yourself a favor and feast your eyes on their magnificence. With Amanda Carrigans Knit Pysanky!, you don’t have to be a master of wax-resist dyeing, you can knit your own! Make a carton of them and they’ll keep for years.
Less traditionally, you can mashup traditions from two of your favorite holidays with Karen DiTammaso’s Easter and Farm Animals Stocking Ornament Set. Your Macaroon Value Pack will give you plenty of spring pastels to choose from to customize these unconventional decorations.
Colorwork: Easy and Hard
Even if your Easter where you are comes a little short of blooming, you can make your own Spring profusion, and keep warm at the same time! If you’re new to colorwork, the Elan Mitts by Bekah Knits are a perfect way to test the waters: the designs are made entirely with slip stitches, so no stranding is required. If you’re ready to jump right into Fair Isle waters, the Jenny Williams’ Full Bloom Hat is a delightful explosion of color. Plug in your choice of palette from the Macaroon pack and you’ve got a bright and cozy Easter gift for yourself or a loved one
Easter palette Shawl
You might have seen the Shades of Leaves Shawl by Kay Meadors before, with it’s lovely homage to the changing foliage of Autumn. Not exactly appropriate for Spring festivities! It is, however, a lovely gradient pattern with some simple lace, perfect for showing off any color scheme. You’re imagination is the limit! And if, like me, your color imagination isn’t terribly unlimited, the Knit Picks Art Director can help. Choose from any of these palettes, specifically chosen from the Macaroon Value Pack, and make yourself a colorful Easter shawl.
More Value Packs
If you are still looking to enjoy some holiday knitting and crave a different fiber, or just a different palette, check out these other delightful mixes. From the technological marvel of Wonderfluff in the light and subtle Soft Value Pack, to the bright and useful Comfy cotton of the Confetti Pack, or just the brilliant, bright and bountiful bonanza of the Easter Basket, there are plenty of ways to knit your way to an Easter party for less.
