It’s been a while since I’ve written a Pattern Radar post. It is rainy, grey and blustery outside my window this morning – just the right day to be thinking about little spring sweaters. New Spring patterns seem to be published almost daily right now; here are seven that have caught my eye.
This is the lovely Violetta by Vibe Ulrik Sondergaard, published in Rowan 57 (all links in this post are to the Ravelry project page).

I love the swingy lines and casual vibe of the Swingback Hoodie by Amy Gunderson, published in knit.purl Spring/Summer 2015:
I am a big fan of the patterns coming out from Shibui Knits. Here is a lovely example, called SS15 Square by Shellie Anderson:

Kidsilk Haze is one of my favorite yarns, and I love the way that Marie Wallin uses it in Philomena, from Rowan 57. My wardrobe could use one in every colour.
I love Drift, by Kristen Finlay, for Skein Designs. (I just happen to have some beautiful Skein yarn in my stash. Hmmm…..I see you, Drift.)
If polka dots are your thing, you can’t beat the lovely Lus by Mer Stevens for the Pom Pom Quarterly, Sring 2015:
When the talented Lori Versaci designs for Shibui, you know the design will be a knockout. Here is her Mix No. 28:
To really appreciate the design, you need a close-up of the neck detail:
This is something of a drive-by post as I am immersed in writing papers this weekend, but its been fun to take a break and dream of Spring!
