Helloooo, spring! And hello to knitting for spring, too! By the time spring finally arrives, I’m usually tired of dark winter colors in home decor knitting. Bright and colorful takes over my home, and that translates right into my knitting for spring. Home decor knitting also means that I can give my space a whole new look, and what better way to do that than knitting home accessories?
If you’re planning on knitting for spring, let Craftsy’s designers help you celebrate the bright colors of the season with your next home decor knitting project.

Knitting home accessories doesn’t have to mean spending a lot of money on yarn. Take some of your favorite bright colors and put them together. What do you get? Why, this round pillow of course! Get inspired by your favorite flower, or just take a cue from your stash to use up those yarn scraps. Whip up a couple of these to make a set, or use them as a decorative pillow on a bed.

This blanket is named after the Mandarin fish that’s famous for its colorful stripes. Designer ImpeccableKnits added a few more bright colors to the blanket in a nod to the fish, making it a favorite for anyone looking to add bright colors to their home.
Tea rose cozy
Traditionally we think of fall and winter as prime tea seasons, but I end up drinking just as much tea in spring and summer. Even if you’re not using your tea pot, you can give it a spring makeover with this colorful tea rose cozy that will protect it from dust and other kitchen messes when you’re not using it.
I know this is a blanket, but wouldn’t it also be completely amazing as a rug? Pop some no-slip grips on the bottom of it and you could easily transform it from blanket to rug. But hey, the blanket looks pretty cozy, too. Either way, it’s a guaranteed way to bring pops of color into your home decor.
Little hearts garland
Knitting hearts is certainly not limited to Valentine’s Day, and neither is decorating with hearts! Grab your brightest scrap yarns and start knitting up these little hearts that are strung together on a ribbon. You can even make the hearts different colors if you can’t decide on just one! The finished garland would look lovely in a bedroom or even a living room.

I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of knitted poufs and floor cushions. This pattern comes in three different sizes, in case you want to make a set or just choose one size that suits your home. I love how designer petitchoufleur tossed a neutral gray in with two brightly colored cushions. The set of three would be great for entertaining when you don’t have enough seats for all your guests, too!
Fruit and veggies basket
Skip traditional centerpieces this spring and instead opt for fun knitted ones, like this fruit and vegetable basket. Sure, it’s toy food, but it’s a centerpiece you won’t have to worry about swapping out any time soon. Not a fan of knitted food as a centerpiece? Just display it around the kitchen somewhere as a fun decoration.
Felt trinket pot
If you’ve never tried felting before, now’s your chance! This little pot is perfect for experimenting with felt since the resulted size doesn’t matter too much. If you shrink it too much, no need to worry! This is also a great home decor idea because you had hide small items in a pretty package. Put it on your entry table to store keys and other small stuff, or use it in a bedroom for jewelry storage.
I suspect that these chunky cushions are going to hang around my house long after spring turns to summer. Knit these out of your softness chunky yarn for maximum comfort while lounging around on your couch. The buttons on the cover mean it’s OK to munch on popcorn while you’re lounging, too, since the cover is removable and washable.
