Our favorite crochet patterns for summer…

Good morning and happy spring! At least the calendar tells me its spring. My snow shovel and boots aren’t so sure. 😉

I won’t lie – I’ve got some serious spring fever going on. It just keeps snowing! And while I seriously adore spring snow and moody skies, I am determined to start my vegetable garden out of doors with a mini green house. I really do love these days when the flies can’t survive because one day it’s 50 degrees and the next day it’s below freezing. Keep your hopes up – summer is around the corner!

So without further ado, and in the spirit of spring fever, here are our favorite summer-time crochet patterns.

Enjoy!

These sandals are incredible. They were designed by I’m Topsy Turvy with her little boy in mind. As a mother to two boys, I appreciate finds like these. It’s very easy to add a flower or change a color to make any project girly, but it’s sometimes difficult to find a project that’s all boy – and these sandals fit the bill. Follow this amazing pattern that includes helpful tips and pictures – you are sure to have a good time making these! Click to view the FREE pattern by Topsy Turvy.

This pattern was designed using simple shaping and while the skirt looks complex, it is easy to achieve. This is the perfect summery dress and when winter comes around you can throw a long sleeved onesie under or finally crochet that cardigan you’ve been putting off!
