Spring Ravelry Favorites from 3 Years of Crochet
With so many exciting new crochet magazines and patterns coming out each year, it can be tough to circle back to the fantastic projects from older issues. Interweave Crochet, Love of Crochet, and Crochetscene are all treasure troves of gorgeous spring crochet patterns.
I looked back over the last three years on Ravelry and pulled 8 of your absolute favorite patterns from our spring issues, plus the very best, springiest patterns from our annual special issue, Crochetscene. Now the challenge: choosing which one to get on the hook first!
Let’s Take It Back to Spring 2015
Dogwood Scarf, Interweave Crochet Spring 2015
Sprays of pink dogwood peeking from among tree trunks darkened by winter inspired this scarf design. Subtly shaded yarn hints at pale, early spring sunlight filtering into the woods. The crochet charm lace technique frees you to arrange the flowers and leaves however you wish. The Dogwood Scarf Pattern has been a long-time favorite spring crochet pattern on Ravelry and is guaranteed to turn heads!
Sea Glass Tunic, Love of Crochet Spring 2015
You’ll rival the beauty of blossoming spring flowers when you wear this fantastic design. The delicate openwork creates a subtle pattern, while simple cluster stitches add depth and texture. Worked in a fine pima cotton, the soft fabric breathes well to create a top you can wear even into the summer months. By far the favorite project from this issue, the Sea Glass Tunic is a project you’ll love to crochet and wear!
Petal Top, Crochetscene 2015
Inspired by blooming cherry trees, the feminine Petal Top features an eyelet stitch pattern evoking a layer of petals. Horizontal lace strips have a hint of new leaves and the intricacy of fragile branches. The top-down seamless construction allows you to adjust for a perfect fit. It was the Crochetscene 2015 cover project for good reason, and it has been a Ravelry favorite ever since!
Spring Back to 2016
Provence Dress, Interweave Crochet Spring 2016
Comfortable and flattering, the Provence Dress is worked from the top down seamlessly for the perfect crocheted outfit. It skims the waist and hips before relaxing into a gentle flare to just above the knee, with plenty of fabric stretch for a comfortable fit for most figure types. There’s a good reason this is a favorite on Ravelry!
Garden Skirt, Love of Crochet Spring 2016
This skirt gently hugs the hip, with larger stitches at the hem to give it plenty of flirty flair and the appearance of curves with no shaping. The waistline has a set of single crochet stitches every four rows, for a slightly firmer waist to avoid slippage when worn. It’s a perfect spring crochet pattern. Ravelers love the fun, fresh Garden Skirt and you will too!
(will you be the first?)
The Very Best of Spring 2017
Citizen Pullover, Interweave Crochet Spring 2017
This top-down raglan pullover is easy to work and has very little finishing. The Tunisian stitches create asymmetrical stripes and subtle texture. It hasn’t been on Ravelry long, but it’s already a favorite!
Labyrinths Cardigan, Love of Crochet Spring 2017
If you’ve ever wanted to snuggle under an afghan and wear it as a sweater, this project has you covered. Play with color and make this entire project from scraps: as long as color A is consistent throughout, you’ll have a uniform look to your labyrinth motifs.

Colorado Poncho, Crochetscene 2017
This crochet poncho is worked sideways, changing from one stitch pattern to another to create a nice variety of textures. Shaping at the shoulder flatters the figure and reduces bulk. This is just the garment when you want to look fabulous but secretly just want to cozy up inside a crochet blanket. The Colorado Poncho is a favorite everywhere—Pinterest, Instagram, and Ravelry of course. Choose your own color and get ready for a project that wows.
We hope you’ve enjoyed these spring crochet patterns from Interweave’s crochet magazines. Let us know in the comments: what’s your favorite spring issue of Interweave Crochet or Love of Crochet?
