This week's designer has a style that seems to shout Spring! Soft! and Sweet!

First, see the pictured katherine. This free (!) pattern is delicate and lovely, and this photograph displays ekatearcher's pretty aesthetic, seen throughout her patterns and on her blog.

Next, see her pretty top/vest, fishtails. I love the detail of lace along the bottom, and how the line beneath the bust echos this shape.

An adorable little cabled vest, plaited, is a very cool way to use those few, much beloved buttons and a smaller amount of yarn and get yourself a stylin FO that can be worn through multiple seasons.

Finally, check out the lovely en pointe, a sweet wrap top. I'm so very in love with this pattern! It's simple and flattering - look for it to be released later this month!!
