Crochet Summer 2019: Instagram Round Up!

Anyone feeling the heat (and humidity)? It’s practically swamp-like in the northeast, which means it’s a great time to chill by the pool or at the beach with a summer crochet project. Our sculptural and openwork sister craft lends itself well to finer yarns and plant-based fibers making it the ideal summer craft. We’ve been following the #crochetsummer2019 and loving the gorgeous, colorful, and unexpected crochet creations you’ve made this summer!

We think it’s time for a mid-summer #crochetsummer2019 project round up! Let’s see what you’ve been up to so far. ☀️😎🌴

J. Riley hooked up this super cute and colorful bikini top just in time for a trip to the beach. We don’t know what’s more impressive—the bikini top or what appears to be crochet chandelier earrings?!

Tammy & Shannon of @topsyturvy_crochet made this rainbow halter that looks perfectly at home in a tropical paradise. Check out the rainbow fringe at the bottom!

Sometimes there is no substitute for good old cotton crochet thread and a granny square motif. @vivichic_crochet’s close up on her stitches shows off the timeless simplicity of crochet.

Siyana made this spectacular bracelet with a few sparkling adornments to complement its flowering structure. We’re in awe. Where can we get one?

Karen Peacock is getting Tunisian-y with it this summer! She’s using our Germantown in natural and sage to whip up an original design. We can’t wait to see the finished project!

Betsy Sennott’s swatch in Perennial’s pineapple color way sure looks sweet for a crocheted shawl! Perennial’s fine light fingering weight gauge is perfect for a summer shawl or top. We’re waiting for Betsy to reveal her finished project soon.

That’s it for now on #crochetsummer2019, but there is still lots of summer left, so keep on stitching. We’ll be watching and hooking up our own projects, too!

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #crochetsummer2019 and, if you feel so inclined, tag us @kelbournewoolens.

Happy Crochet Summer!
