Choosing the Right Materials
For Your Easter Knitting Project
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.
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.
