Crocheting in Summer

A lot of people think about putting down their crochet during the summer months. After all, if the weather is warm, then you don’t want a big wool project on top of your lap, right? Wrong. There are so many different options for lightweight yarns that there’s no reason you can’t crochet in the summer. Moreover, you can easily find crochet patterns that are small enough, or worked in segments, so that they don’t cause you to overheat while you craft.

Plus, you can crochet summer tops and other projects that are fun to wear as soon as you get them off of your hook. Add to your summer wardrobe with some great handmade items thanks to the fifty crochet summer tops patterns below! And if you’re feeling ambitious, check out our roundup of the best crochet shorts patterns too!

Summer Yarns for Lightweight Crochet

If you are thinking about yarns to make summer crochet tops, then you will want to think about what they are made of more than the weight of the yarn. I don’t think that you want to make a summer top with a bulky weight yarn but worsted can still work, depending on the stitch pattern. And even lighter weight yarns can be the perfect choice.

Moreover, you want to think about the yarn material. Looking for yarns with cotton, linen, silk and bamboo are great options for your summertime projects. In the collection of 50 free crochet summer tops patterns below, you will find a selection of yarns that are great for wearing and crocheting with throughout the summer.

  • Cabot: 70% pima cotton, 30% linen
