As the days get longer and the temperatures get warmer it’s easy to think your yarn hobbies have to take a backseat to baseball games and sipping margaritas. And while crocheting a cozy, chunky blanket poolside doesn’t sound very pleasant, there really are tons of fantastic spring and summer crochet patterns that are equally as cool as their cold-weather counterparts.

I asked some of my crochet blogging friends to share their most popular spring and summer crochet patterns and, guys, they have such fantastic designs! I can see many of these free patterns making perfect crochet Mother’s Day gifts, bridesmaid gifts or perhaps best of all, gifts to yourself! Treat yo’ self ladies, before the holiday season arrives and you feel guilty if you’re not crocheting for someone else!

This collection of spring and summer crochet patterns includes several crochet shoes with flip flop soles, crochet tops and so many gorgeous lightweight shrugs and cardigans. (Over zealous air conditioning won’t get the best of us this year. Nope!)

And one of the reasons I love designing for Lion Brand is because their yarn is so widely available. I know that whatever I use in a pattern, you’ll be able to easily get from LionBrand.com or a local craft store. So I’m happy to say that all of these spring and summer crochet patterns are made with Lion Brand yarn and for many of these projects, you can even purchase a kit that includes all the yarn needed to complete the pattern in one tidy little bundle directly from LionBrand.com.

      Thanks Chrisandra! I know what you mean. Once I started digging for these patterns, I realized there are plenty of things to keep me busy until it’s cold again!

      I love your new slippers. I just pinned them. 🙂

    I teach crocheting to girls in grade 10 in India. Patterns are not readily available, and they wanted to make sweaters this year (their second year with me). I have devised a pattern using the sport weight yarn available here (I’ve also made it with American 4 ply) that works the sweater from side to side. I’ve got a square necked version and a turtleneck version. These are much easier to size w/o a pattern. Are you at all interested in seeing any of these?

      Hey Judith,

      That sounds like a wonderful project for teaching the girls. They are so lucky to have you! My mom actually taught me to crochet in school as well and I loved having something to do with my hands. I’d love to see what you’re making! Feel free to email me at Jess (at) makeanddocrew (dot) com.

      Hey Christa,

      I understand that for sure, I like to use books too. I don’t currently have a book of my slippers, but I do sell each pattern as a PDF that you can print out if you prefer not to work from your computer. Each PDF costs $2.50 and most of the slipper ones include a “ruler” to print for poking holes in your flip flops. Hope that is helpful to you! You can see them all here.

    Thank you for your generosity in sharing these wonderful patterns. We are going into Autumn here in South Africa so my fingers are itching to get going again after an extremely long, hot dry Summer.

      Oh yes! That is one of my favorite things about fall–it’s crochet season! I visited South Africa a few years ago and found the landscape stunning. Thanks so much for saying hello, Sue!

    Hi,
    I was looking for something to make for the 4th of July, something small to give out as pins…Uncle Sam hat, or a small US flag…do you have anything like that?
    Thanks

      Hey Betty,

      That sounds like such a fun idea! These coasters aren’t a pattern, but you might be able to take some inspiration from them to come up with your own flag design.

      Also, maybe a smaller version of these potholders might work?

      I’d love to see a pic of what you end up making if you’d like to email me or tag me on Instagram. 🙂

      Jess
