Easter Knitting Projects

Updated on April 7, 2014

Put Some Spring in Your Step!

With spring in the air, it's nice to know that Easter is just around the corner. Just because the weather is breaking, don't put your needles away! There are lots of fun and easy knitting projects for spring and Easter. Many of the projects use just basic knitting skills and require only a small amount of yarn. I hope you like this collection of knitting projects for spring. Use them to decorate the Easter dinner table, in an easter basket, or as a gift.

These cozy bunny slippers are perfect for wearing on Easter Morning and all spring long!

Choosing the Right Materials

For Your Easter Knitting Project

Yarn Colors

When choosing colors for your Easter knitting projects, use lots of vibrant shades. I like to call them "happy colors." Spring green, bright yellow, orange, red, pink, purple all make ideal colors for your Easter knitting.

Yarn Weights

The pattern will usually specify which weight yarn you should use. Lace and fingering weights are the thinnest yarns - chunky/bulky weight yarns are the thickest. It helps to choose the correct yarn weight and needle size specified in the pattern to insure your project will turn out as expected.

Types of Yarn

There are so many options available to choose. Easter knitting projects may be knitted using cotton, acrylic, wool or wool blend yarns. Most of the Easter projects we mentioned have a great design, so go with a simple/plain yarn to really have your project shine.
