4 Nautical Summer Crochet Patterns You Need to Crochet Now
I’m ready for the beach. Sun, waves, sand and crochet. Did I mention it is snowing here in May? If the weather won’t cooperate, I’m going to pull out my summer crochet. With visions of sandy beaches and relaxing with my latest crochet project, here are my top 4 nautical summer crochet pattern favorites.
1. Aquatic Swimsuit by Isa Catepillán
If you’re going to look for nautical summer crochet patterns why not commit and go all in with this stunning crochet swimsuit. I might not recommend this crochet swimsuit for swimming laps, but we’re going to the beach to sunbathe anyway. Crochet motifs add just the right touch of modest lace to the sport inspired top and create a perfect high waisted bottom. This crochet swimsuit design is flattering on a variety of body types. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even add a row of motifs to the top to add even more coverage. You can do it, and you’ll look gorgeous! Give the Aquatic Swimsuit a try!
2. Time Honored Sweater by Natasha Robarge
This openwork lace crochet sweater is a favorite of many people, myself included. This crochet summer sweater has it all; post stitches create texture and openwork crochet lace and mesh patterning makes this a perfect warm weather choice. This sweater has minimal shaping which means that you can easily modify the design. I think it would make an amazing cover up or even an ankle length dress! I even love the natural color of the sample. It reminds me of sand dollars. Longer, shorter, neutral colored or bright, you should add the Time Honored Sweater to your crochet queue.
3. Yesteryear Top by Mimi Alelis
If you think this crochet top has a vintage feel, you would be absolutely correct. Designer Mimi Alelis was inspired by a vintage pineapple stitch crochet collar for this modern crop top. The smooth cotton thread gives you amazing stitch definition and makes a cool fabric perfect for summer. Not a crop top lover? Adding length is as simple as working additional rows. What color will you make the Yesteryear Top in?
4. Strappy Sandals by Brenda K. B. Anderson
No visit to the beach is complete without the perfect pair of sandals. These strappy crochet sandals have been in my crochet queue for a while now and this is the summer I crochet them. The entire sandal is crocheted including the base which is crocheted around a flip flop. A single crochet motif forms the top of the sandal. You’ll want one in every color. So get started on your first pair of Strappy Sandals today!
