Free Summer Crochet Patterns For Beginners

Crocheting is not just for winter, you know! Summer's here and it's time to crochet something beautiful you can use this season!

Most people like to read by the pool, but hey, why not bring your crochet hook and some yarn and get working on a beautiful project instead? Don't forget your sunscreen though!

I curated my favourite list of summer items I'm going to crochet this season. They're all free patterns too! Summer Crochet


1. Summer Hat Crochet Pattern

Keep your head protected! This summer hat is super easy to work up and uses Luffy Paper Yarn. It's great to experiment with new types of yarn and create something that's so beautiful and useful too! I tried it out and am delighted with the results! Give it a try!

3. Beach Day Accessory Crochet Pouch

This crochet pouch is so adorable, and functional too! It's a perfect fit for your sunglasses, phone, keys and other valuables that you want to keep with you on the beach, but keep out of the sand. The pouch is lined and closed with a zipper to keep all your belongings safely inside and the sand kindly outside.

4. Sturdy Market Tote

Ever tried working a crochet project using two strands at the same time? It's fun and makes your project have a nice bulky look. It'll be sturdy enough to carry your heavy market purchases. Can be used as a beach bag too, of course.

9. Cat Face Mask

2020's the year we all had to start wearing face masks in the face of corona virus. For a while medical face masks were quite difficult to come by, so crocheting your own was one solution to this problem.  Crocheted face masks are by no means a substitute to medical ones, but at least they will cover your nose and mouth. And how about having some fun with them and stitching on a cute cat or mouse embellishment?!
