Spring Charm Set
What could be a better reminder of spring than bunnies, chicks, carrots and flowers? This adorable spring-themed garland is fun and fast to work up. The Bunny and Chick are similar in their seamless construction. The Flower petals use double-knitting in a very simple way. In the pattern, I’ve included an exclusive instructional video link on how to do the double knitting rows and how to finish the flower to make things easy for you. The Carrot is quick and seamless, too. You’ll have whipped up your own Spring Charm Set in no time at all. Hopefully, these new charms will bring the joys of spring right into your house!
