Summer Crochet Patterns
When I think of Summer I can imagine light, breezy days, a warm sun, a good book and some yarn (of course) in my hands. I love to make all types of yarn projects throughout the year, but occasionally, when the weather turns a little warm, it is good to bring out the cotton yarn!
The crochet patterns that are great for Summer are ones that use a lightweight yarn (like the cotton I mentioned above) and somewhat quick ones! I love using cotton blends too since they are still a pretty light & airy fiber.
If you’d like some suggestions on which yarns to use, I will list out a few of my favorites below.
The Best Summer Yarns
With so many yarns to choose from, I thought I’d show you a few of my favorites yarns for summer! Enjoy! First, I love Comfy Cotton Blends by Lion Brand because of the color palettes it comes in. Another favorite of mine is Lily Sugar N’ Cream yarn from Yarnspirations because it holds up extremely well to wear and tear.
Lastly, my newest love is 24/7 cotton from Lion Brand, which is a mercerized yarn that has some pretty impressive sheen to it. Be sure to take a look at the fibers below and let me know what you think.
