Warm Weather Knit and Crochet Patterns

Lots of makers love to knit and crochet year-round, but often come up at a loss with what to make when the weather turns warm and they don’t want to be sweating under a heavy blanket or wait for months to wear their new toque (winter hat for you non-Canadians). I’m here to tell you that you can knit or crochet all spring and summer long and that there are plenty of wonderful options of things to make. Check out some of my favourites here!

This Summer Days Crop Top Crochet Pattern from Desamour Designs is a great intermediate or adventurous beginner-friendly pattern and is size inclusive with instructions to adjust the length and size of bra cup. Make a flirty crop top for yourself for this summer to stay cool and look great!

If you’re a knitter, there are great crop top options for you, too! The Summer Knitted Halter Crop Top Pattern from DPM Knits is an easy to follow knitting pattern that is written for sizes XS-XL and the length can be adjusted with the lace so that it can fit all body shapes! One of the lovely things about spring and summer patterns is that they are usually smaller projects, so they work up quickly and they require much less yarn than a blanket or a sweater. This cute crop top calls for only 1-2 balls of Paintbox Simply DK yarn and it’s super affordable!

Crocheted bags are one of my favourite go-to’s for warm weather making. I love the texture on this Maple Mini Bag Crochet Pattern from Slowmoments Crafts. The pattern includes a full video tutorial so you can follow along, making it perfect for an adventurous beginner crocheter to learn the star stitch pattern. It calls for Linen100 yarn (which I’m not familiar with, but I bet Lionbrand 24/7 Cotton Yarn would work great, too!

This Boho-Style Jute Eco-Bag Crochet Pattern from LapaLand is relaxed and textured and makes a perfect summer crossbody handbag for keeping your things near while taking a stroll in the park or at a festival (Do we get festivals again? Soon? Please?) I just love the natural colours of the jute and the wooden button. There’s just something so calming about these neutral colours and natural fibres. Sometimes it’s hard to find jute yarn, but you can get some here on Amazon, but I’ve also found it at the dollar store.

Bags are for knitters, too! This Easy Chunky Knit Crochery Bat Pattern from Striks And Mix Pattern is extra beginner-friendly with NO PURL stitches! So if you hate to purl or you’re just looking for a mindless pattern to use up a ball of your stash, this is the pattern for you! You can make multiple sizes by using different size yarns and the corresponding needles.

I just love the beautiful texture and drape on The Sweetpea Top Crochet Pattern from Evelyn And Peter. This is a size-inclusive pattern written in 8 sizes (S-5X) and calls for Lionbrand Truboo Yarn, which is a 100% bamboo yarn with a gorgeous sheen and a delicious drape! It is so soft so it makes the perfect yarn to make lightweight garments! This pattern is also available as part of a Lionbrand Kit, so if you want to get the yarn and pattern altogether, pick up the kit and save yourself the trouble of sourcing the yarn and pattern separately.

Isn’t this gauzy Summer Knit Top Pattern from ileaiye just dreamy? It is made with chunky yarn and some extra large knitting needles, which makes for a quick and easy project with this stunning, easy-breezy, boho style. If you’re not afraid to show some skin, it would make a gorgeous top to wear out and about or as a beach cover-up. So pretty! This is a super easy pattern and would work up quickly with the large needles!

I love the simplicity of the Silver Spring Knit Tank Pattern from wise knits designs. This easy knitting pattern is quick and easy and uses 550-1500 yards of worsted weight cotton yarn. I would recommend Lionbrand’s Cotton Ease Yarn for this project.

Did you know you can knit your own shorts? I never would have thought of it before, but these look so light and comfy! This Light Summer Shorts Knitting Pattern from Holly C Watson makes a pair of high-waisted shorts with a drawstring waistband and flowy, wide legs with a rolled cuff. I think these would feel lovely in this Bambu 7 Yarn from Lionbrand.

I hope this has inspired you to keep creating through the warmer months. There are plenty of fun and interesting patterns that make great projects for taking on the road or to the deck without sweating under a pile of wool! Pick up one of these great patterns today and get making! Or pin it for later so you don’t forget!

The days have begun to get longer and Easter is approaching! It’s such a great time of hope as the snow melts and the sun shines for longer each day! It’s a great time to make so many cute and adorable things, as well! I just love all the fun Easter- and spring-themed patterns that independent designers come up with. I’ve collected a great little group of knit and crochet patterns, and even a little craft kit if you’re looking for a break from stitching. Check them out below!

The Easter Carrot Gnome Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Pam Pinostore is such a fun idea!!! How adorable is that carrot hat on than gnome! I’m dying!!! I love the brushed out beard and little carrot accompaniment. This would make such cute Easter decor that you can keep around all spring!

If you don’t crochet, but prefer to knit, you can get in on the gnome game as well by making this Bunny Gnome and Easter Egg Knitting Pattern from Little Totz Designs. Little knit toys make great Easter basket stuffers and they’re sure to delight everyone!

While definitel less realistic, I just love this Crochet Easter Bunny with Cross Stitch Embroidery Pattern from sam Snosami PDF. I love the sweet flowers all over these gorgeous heirloom quality dolls. These will make such a special keepsake, made with love!

Dotpebbles Knits impresses again with this realistic Wild Rabbit Knitting Pattern. How sweet is this little bunny?! Such an amazing pattern! I’ve never actually made a knit stuffed toy before because I usually find crochet amigurumi to be cuter, but this pattern is just so impressive!

See? Crochet amigurumi is soooooo cute?! This adorable little Bonnie the Bunny Crochet Pattern from When Crafting Is Life with those fabric-lined ears just makes me melt with sweetness!

Ok, I know my kids are kinda done with the stuffy stage (officially, but I think my younger two are still fans of cuddly toys), but this Amigurumi Bunny in Carrot Crochet Pattern from Fiona Dolls is just the sweetest and I think they’d all think this little guy was pretty cute!

Something about this Cuddly Chick Toy Knitting Pattern from Fluff and Fuzz just made me think of the Wonder Pets Show and the little chick that was in that animated series. This sweet little knit chick would be another great Easter basket item!

Maybe this Easter Bunny String Art Craft Kit from String Art From Heart seems a little out of place after a whole bunch of knit and crochet items, but it’s definitely Easter-themed and it’s so cute! Many knitters and crochers, including myself, need a little break from the yarn stitching crafts and a quick and easy kit like this one makes the perfect little break and a satisfying project. Don’t be afraid to put down your needles or hooks for a bit to enjoy making something different!

I hope you found some inspiring patterns to get making for Easter and spring this year. Hope is in the air, friends! It’s a great time to make some cute crafts! Pick up one of these patterns today or pin it for later.
