Summer Crochet Patterns
For each of the projects below, I list the pattern format as well as the yarn weight. This allows you to see at a glance what you might be able to use from your stash for a fun summer crochet project.
Most of the patterns are free, and the ones that are paid are marked with a “$”.
I was looking to add a splash of color to my summer wardrobe this year and I really like cardigans or flannels that I can just throw on for a little warmth and style. So I whipped this really easy blanket sweater. And I do mean EASY folks!
The Rainbow Crown has a lot of options for striping patterns, colors, and more so you can customize it to suit anyone! I have also included a detailed photo tutorial, and link to video tutorial for weaving in all those ends and hiding them really well!
When the weather is warm we might not always want to work on a blanket or other big crochet project. These mason jar covers can give you a quick and fun project. They are also great for adding a little decoration to your table or desk. Pop in a little water and some flowers. Or maybe use them to decorate a jar for holding pens or your crochet hooks.
If you’re hoping to make the next step from simple hats and scarf projects then this easy crochet beach tote bag tutorial is a great simple project for beginners. Once you have created your base you can make your bag as deep or shallow as you like, the sturdy stitch means it’s perfect for all of your groceries.
The inspiration behind this crochet wall art comes from those rain showers that happen in the midst of sunshine. I find those kinds of rain showers so peaceful and full of hope. This wall hanging is the perfect cheerful kid-friendly twist on modern wall art.
The Crochet Wishing Well Shawl is an elegant lacey shawl made in the beautiful gray and cream tones using the Caron Big Cakes from Yarnspirations. This shawl can be made in any #4 yarn but with the beautiful Caron Cakes, the colors match and the colors change for you so you don’t have to worry about matching or changing colors in this project!
This design is incredibly easy to make, all you need to know is how to chain, slip stitch, half double crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet. I outline all the measurements needed below so you can easily adjust it to fit your body and length preferences.
Butterflies have always been special to me, so I’m kicking off summer with a butterfly flip flop crochet pattern. I used I Love This Cotton yarn from Hobby Lobby, but any yarn will do. It takes less than an ounce of yarn to decorate a pair of flip flops with a butterfly motif. The pattern is so quick and easy, you can make several pairs in an evening.
This is a great garment to simply throw over your bikini on summer holiday or dress up a little for cocktail at the bar and let the crochet lacy stitches do all the talking. This is an easy beginner friendly crochet pattern and a great one if you are just starting out in crochet garment making. The lacy stitches create an intricate looking fabric but they are really easy and the stitch pattern is easily memorable.
Who knew a simple leaf stitch repeat would create such a stunning design! This pattern is sure to be a staple in your closet and will get you many compliments from your maker and may even convert some non-crocheters.
This is a project that you can memorise and bring everywhere. The amigurumi whale is made with simple crochet stitches and this is a great beginner-project. But also more experienced crocheters will have fun with this. I did!
