Summer is here and so is the hot weather. Most crocheters put their hook down during the summer because it’s just too hot to crochet. And I agree 100% with doing that. I could not crochet a blanket in the summer with the heavy weight of it sitting on my lap day after day. Thankfully, we don’t have to put our hooks down anymore. We can now make hot summer trendy clothing articles.
Here is a list of cute pieces of clothing that you can make now and wear all summer long. Some of these items are paid patterns and some are free patterns. Are you ready to take a look at the the round up?
1. Lakeside Cover Up (free pattern)
This is my pattern that was just released on June 4th over on Two Brothers Blankets blog as a guest blogger. The Lakeside Cover Up is perfect to throw around your waist when you’re spending the day at the lake or pool. You can easily throw it over your shoulders when you’re ready to leave if you’d like. It can be worn either way. This will be over there on here website until the end of the month and then will be over here on mine after.
2. Peach Blossom Wrap (paid pattern)
This beautiful wrap is worked up in sport weight cotton yarn. Gauge is not important on it so you can use larger weight yarn and alter the length to you liking if you’d wish. It would be perfect paired with a summer dress.
3. Texas Bluebonnet Shawl (paid pattern)
This shawl would be the perfect accessory for an early Saturday morning at the farmer’s market or a lovely Sunday morning spent at Church. It’s also very versatile. Instructions are given for fingering weight yarn and DK weight yarn with a repeating pattern which will allow you to make the shawl to whatever size you desire. I know we all love a pattern that gives us options.
4. Lacy Leaves Shawl (free pattern)
The Lacy Leaves Shawl can be worn either bunched as a scarf or over the shoulders. The light weight shawl makes it idea for the cooler summer nights. It’s made with a very soft 100% fingering weight cotton.
5. Blossom Top (paid pattern)
This cute crop top is the absolute summer wear. Can we just take a moment and admire the subtle ruffles on the bottom? Wow! This top can be made in sizes XS all the way up to 5XL. This top was made in DK weight yarn but you can use any alternative yarn or hook as long as it’s according to the gauge.
6. Aviva Summer Top (free pattern)
This cute summer top is made in two identical panels and sewn together. 100% cotton DK weight yarn was used to make this for the warmer Spring/Summer days. You could use wool or acrylic for a warmer, layering, top for the colder months. The designer also provides the pattern in sizes S to 3XL.
7. Summer Fields Shawl (paid pattern)
This adorable summer shawl is made with light weight yarn making it light and airy for the days you’d like to accessorize a tank top or shirt while you go out for a day. It’s shorter than most shawls so your arms are free from the weight and allow more breathing room.
