5 free crochet patterns you should make this summer

The sun is finally making an appearance, so it is time to make a start on your spring-summer wardrobe! I have been on the hunt for some fun new projects so I can get my wardrobe ready for the sun. I have rounded up 5 of my favourite spring-summer crochet patterns that you should make this season.

Vadella Bag by Wool and the Gang

I love this pop of colour, it is so fun and perfect for summer! This pattern is a super simple make: a couple of granny squares and a gusset, and then you just crochet the panels together. Raffia yarn is super fun to work with and makes such a nice change from the usual fibres. You could also try this pattern out with some alternative yarns as sizing isn't as crucial with an accessory, it could also be fun to make a bigger or smaller version of this bag. Wool and the Gang have a whole range of free patterns that are really modern. If you haven't before, I would suggest checking out their website.

Find the pattern on their website or at Ravelry.

Perfect Fade Pants by Red Heart Design Team

These look so comfy, the perfect trousers for cool summer evenings. They are worked top down in half double crochet, which is a fairly dense stitch, so you don't have to worry about them being see-through. If you want to have these in time for summer, I would get started right away as this is a hefty project, but I think these trousers would work for wintertime, too! You could also very easily adapt these into a pair of shorts.

Find the pattern on their website.

Selene Shirt by Carrie M Chambers

I can't believe this one is free! This designer has a load of free patterns available on her blog, so definitely check her out. There have been some really cute summery ones recently. I love the stitch in this one. Fabrics like this scream summertime and are perfect for layering (they also work up super quickly, which is always a plus). This garment is worked in flat panels, seamed, and then the collar and button bands are worked onto the shirt.

Autumn Breeze Bandana by Heather Brooke

This is the perfect beginner pattern. If you can make granny squares, you can make this! It's a great way to get a good understanding of the stitch pattern and how it is constructed. Bandanas are the perfect summer accessory that can easily transform an outfit. This is a super quick project, so you could even make a few and colour-coordinate! Heather has a bunch of great free patterns; be sure to check out her Instagram.

Believe Skirt Pattern by Wool and the Gang + Noorvana

This skirt is great for those trying to expand their crochet stitch knowledge. The mesh pattern will work up quickly and create a light and breathable fabric, perfect for a beach cover-up. The pattern is for a mini skirt, but you could easily extend it to a midi or maxi skirt for a more dramatic effect. Wool and the Gang always collaborates with up-and-coming designers, so be sure to browse their website for the full collection of patterns.

I hope I have inspired you to crochet some projects this summer. Crocheting doesn't have to be a winter hobby. I am excited to get the Vadella bag started; I just need to find the perfect raffia colour. What were your favourite patterns and plans for the summer season?

Happy crocheting,
