Have you ever knit a project with green yarn? What pattern did you use?

  1. One of my favorites was the #07 Gathered Cardi by Cathy Carron from an issue of Knit 1 from 2008 for my daughter.. Green isn’t a favorite color for myself but also did a jumper for the youngest granddaughter and a lace shrug for my daughter. I see I tend to use ‘spring’ greens with a touch of yellow undertone.

  2. Last summer for Camp Loopy, I chose 5 colors of Loopy Ewe Solids in shades of green and crocheted the Grantangle. I love it, and it currently lives on the bottom of my bed, partly decorative, and partly so I can wrap myself up in it when I’m sitting up there and need a wrap.

  3. I am yearning for green yarn right now. Definitely longing for spring to come soon! Thank you for the cheery projects. 🙂

  4. Lovely green projects! I have several pair of hand knit socks in green. Magic Mirror was the most challenging pattern. I’m trying to buy less green sock yarn this year.

  5. I knit a pair of Golden Leaves (Cookie A) socks in Casbah Hemlock. Then gave them as a birthday gift so have to knit another pair of socks in casbah for me. Cause those were some yummy feeling socks….

  6. I designed my Simple Cable Socks in Dream in Color Smooshy Happy Forest ( and Circuits hat in Knit Picks Swish DK in Peapod ( My biggest green project was the Green Gable Hoodie in Lion Brand Chunky (–huppari—greengable–hoodie). It’s the project that made me finally start to really USE Ravelry in 2009 because it had so many errata and other issues! Thank goodness for people who had knit it before and posted about it…

  7. I’ve knit with a lot of green yarns according to Ravelry (18 projects to be exact). The most memorable ones would be DIC Classy in Spring Tickle (Give a Hoot mittens), Loopy Solids in Lime (striped scarf), Manos del Uruguay Serena in Green Tea (Serena Shadow shawl), DIC Smooshy in Emerald Darkness (Mizzle shawl), and a lot of Cascade 220 in Citron (felted bags). And I recently ordered TIG Sergeant Pepper, which is a lime gradient-dyed yarn. I love green!

  8. So many beautiful projects!

    My most memorable green project (apologies to TLE) was long ago, a 2 x 2 striped Baby Surprise in Red Heart variegated green and Dazzleaire misty variegated greens. It was beautiful!

  9. I once knit a Kaffe Fassett Sweater out of dark green rowan aran with bright orange and red flowers. It weighs a ton, but has been a lifesaver this winter in Vermont.
    Actually I often knit with green yarns, it makes me think of gardening in the summer when the winter winds blow. catherine
