The Best Crochet Projects to Make In the Summertime

When choosing a summer crochet project, there are a few things to keep in mind. If you want to create summer garments and accessories, you’ll want to choose lightweight tops, scarves, or shawls with open stitches that allow air to flow through the fabric.

Fiber content is also important for summer crochet wearables. Generally, you will want to choose lightweight yarn all through the summer season in natural, plant-based fibers. Bamboo (rayon), linen, and cotton yarn are all good options to create your summer wardrobe.

Even if you will not be wearing your project, you will want to consider your comfort while making it. When the temperature is climbing, no one wants to sit under a heavy blanket that will trap the heat. Instead, work on small items like water bottle holders, coasters, or home decor accents. If you still want to make a blanket, choose a pattern made from individual squares. Then, you can join them later on when the weather is cooler.

Here are just a few ideas for summer crochet projects:

  • Light and airy scarves and tops with open, breathable stitch patterns
  • Cotton hats with brims to protect your face from the sun’s rays
  • Tote bags to carry all of your summer essentials
  • Holders and cozies for water bottles and frozen treats
  • Portable crochet projects that you can take along anywhere
  • Little things that won’t hang over your lap and add unwanted warmth

This selection includes some of each of these categories. As you can see, there are plenty of fun ways to keep crocheting comfortably, all through the summer season!
