Summer is in the air! Get ready for Summer with this pattern compilation of garments, accessories and blankets. Crochet is such a versatile craft that you can crochet year round and have something beautiful, exciting and ready to wear no matter the season. Light and airy tops and shawls are great for those summer evenings spent at the park, under the stars or camping. Hats can help to keep the sun away from your eyes, and keep your head warm on cooler nights when camping. Blankets are fun for laying on the grass at the park or at the beach. And, of course, you can’t forget the summer tote that serves as a carry all for everything you need to be summer ready.
This seaside blanket was inspired by the beaches of my youth (Mossel Bay and Muizenberg, South Africa), which both had gorgeous beach huts. This inspiration was fueled into flame on our recent trip to Swanage (Jurassic Coast, UK).
This basic super quick hat is perfect for summer, the wider brim will keep the sun out of your eyes. Add a decorative flower to the shell band for a bit of cheer.
The Sunset Shawlette is a lightweight wrap with unique trapezoid shape, which is perfect for draping around the shoulders, tying as a fashion scarf, or wrapping up as a cowl. If you prefer a traditional triangular shawl, just add a second ball of yarn and keep going with the easy 2 row repeat.
The yarn used for this project is Silk Cloud in Mermaid at the Sea. I absolutely love the colors in this yarn. It reminded me so much of a perfect summer day at the beach so I was inspired to create something can be worn in the summer. This cowl is super lightweight and breathable. It will add the perfect accent to that cute summer outfit that needs just a little bit more.
The Saving You (From) Summer beanie is designed to have a somewhat open design while still allowing enough protection from the sun too. Many people getting chemo treatments still get cold in the doctor’s offices and a lightweight hat made of cotton is the perfect little trick.
A casual and lightweight summer crochet bag pattern … perfect for a day around the town or a trip to the beach!
