We’re in the heat of Crochet Summer 2016, and we’ve been loving the attention everyone has been lavishing on our sister craft this summer. As knitters, first and foremost, Crochet Summer is our way of giving crochet her moment in the sun, if you will. We all (well, many of us) tend to knit a bit less in the summer, and crochet lends itself so well to working with lighter yarns, and is also great in breezy openwork stitches, perfect for summertime crafting.
Let’s see what some #crochetsummer2016 participants have been crocheting this summer!
Cal Patch is known for her amazing crochet work, and her crochet-yoked smocks are a particular favorite of mine. During Crochet Summer 2014, she visited us on the blog with a tutorial for a crochet yoke tee. Check it out here.
From Haus of Yarn in Nashville, TN we have a wonderful assortment of crocheted (and knit!) washcloths. These small cotton accessories are perfect for warm weather knitting, and make great gifts.
These crochet earrings by Nez Jewelry were made by Linette, our new KW staff member! She made these at the shore while on vacation with her family. Lovely!
This adorable filet crochet pillow is from PeacockKaren on Instagram. Definitely check out her IG feed, it’s absolutely inspiring!
We hope these projects have inspired you to grab some yarn and a hook and get crocheting! Please tag your Instagram posts with #crochetsummer2016, we love to see what you create.
