As the brutal cold of winter lets go, gravitation to warmth, with bright vivid color begins to influence our thoughts. This design captures elements on trend as well as the retro mementos we can all relate to. Asymmetric lines, drop shoulders, open airy construction all call out to the young in us while the worsted weight cotton yarn offers weight to hold some of the remaining cold at bay. As the season progresses, the cotton fiber will offer a wicking away quality making this the perfect pop for wear after a day at the beach or poolside. Add this layer to your wardrobe and Burst into Spring.

The Teal version shown was the work of Lisa Young. She chose Bernat Handicrafter DeLux Cotton Yarn in Navy and Seaspray. I really love the way the color palette works for this version.

This was the Round 5 motif challenge.
