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!

Crochet in the Summertime

Did you know that some people think yarn crafts are only for winter and fall? Crazy, right?! I get it, though. If it’s sweltering outside, the last thing you might want to do is sit under a heavy afghan while you crochet (though, with office air conditioning, I still feel like I need a sweater at work!). Well, regardless of the temperature, there are plenty of patterns you can make in the relaxing summer months, that don’t have to make you sweat. Check out some of these great summer finds!

Instead of thinking garments like sweaters and toques, you can make decor, like this Fresh Fringe Banner by Candace from Wildflower Crochet Co. I met Candace at the knit night before Our Maker Life this year and she was working on one of these beauties. It comes together starting in triangle pieces, so you can travel with it while you make it. (She also has some finished items if you don’t crochet or don’t have time to make one!).

I’m a big fan of these gorgeous summer dresses, made from pieced together crocheted motifs. This crocheted dress would be perfect to make during the spring or summer and wear on the beach or at the resort during your winter getaway.

Sophie and Me Pdf Pattern Design also has a lovely summer dress crochet pattern that would definitely be worth your time! I love the beachy vibes of this Florence Granny Lace Dress/Top! The pattern is so versatile, you can make it either a top or a dress!

For another beachy pattern, check out this gorgeous Butterfly Crochet Crop Top! I love the sexy, strappy look of this cute top!

I can’t get enough of these bright and lively mandalas! This Spanish Mandala crochet pattern has instructions for making it into a round colourful cushion! I think the colours and design are just stunning and the different stitches look like a joy to make!

Summertime is also a great time to be making some amigurumi! This adorable Clyde the Monkey crochet pattern is so fun and if you want to get a head start on your holiday making, this little guy is perfect!

For a quick project you can use right away, this sweet Luna Headband crochet pattern is perfect for keeping your hair out of your face this summer!

The Steffy Crochet Headband Pattern is another quick stash-busting crochet pattern that is perfect to throw in your handbag to keep your hands busy while travelling. Lightweight and cheeky, this charming headband requires just 200 yards of yarn! Perfect summer project!

This bath mitt makes a great year-round project and a perfect little gift for anyone from your coworker to your mother in law! You can make them up with some lightweight cotton yarn in the summer and be all ready for the gift-giving season!

Summer is also a great time to make up a new handbag. This textured Macie Handbag Crochet Pattern is a summer bag pattern that’s just a little different!

There are so many great patterns you can make in the summer and for summer, you never have to stop making! Pick up a pattern today and make one of these gorgeous designs! Or pin it for later!
