Over the weekend, bluets suddenly appeared everywhere. They're one of my favorite spring flowers. So simple and sweet! Up close, I love studying their pale violet and yellow colors. From a distance, they seem to magically hover above the grass like a low-lying cloud.
My Bluet Cowl is named after them, and to celebrate their return I'm having a flash sale in my Ravelry pattern store. Save 50% on Bluet through midnight EST this Wednesday, May 9. No coupon code is needed — the discount will be applied automatically when you check out.
Bluet is a seamless design, knit in the round on a circular needle. It's lightweight — perfect for spring — featuring a pretty mix of ribbing and lace. You can knit it in either sportweight or DK weight yarns. For stitches that pop, choose a crisp wool like Louet Gems (above). Or, knit it up in a blend of wool and silk, such as Stitch Sprouts Yellowstone (below), for extra softness and drape.
Have you seen any bluets yet where you live? I'm not sure if they're early or late, though in general everything seems to be happening a little later than usual here in western Massachusetts this spring.
Wherever you are, I hope you're enjoying many beautiful spring flowers. I'm posting a different flower every day throughout the month of May on my Instagram account. You're welcome to join me: the hashtag is #floweradayinmay.
Happy spring — and happy knitting!
