Interweave Crochet Summer 2019
Summer is beginning to peter out, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it! Here in Colorado, the days continue to be hot and long well into September. I don’t even bother putting away my summer wardrobe until the beginning of November most years. So there’s still plenty of time for intrepid stitchers to start on some summer crochet projects! And there are so many beautiful patterns to explore in Interweave Crochet Summer 2019!
1. Jasmine Flower Dress by Alla Koval
This dress is absolutely enchanting to behold! The floor-length skirt is done in all-over crochet lace, making the dress extremely breathable, and the ties at the top front give the dress more flexibility. The empire-waist of the dress is extremely flattering on many body-types, and the pattern is quite adjustable: if you want a shorter skirt, just stop stitching a little earlier! Find it on Ravelry here.
2. Summer Peach Purse by Brenda K. B. Anderson
Brenda K.B. Anderson’s summery purse is created with raffia, a material which is more durable than yarn and gives more structure to your pieces. The project is a simple one, focusing on simple stitches and well-planned increases. The tassels on the side give the project a pop, making it stand out on a beach or in the city, wherever your adventures take you! Find it on Ravelry here.
3. Regal Cardigan by Natasha Robarge
If you’re like me, you’re inclined to wear cardigans all year round, even in the heat of summer. Natasha Robarge’s light, flowing cardigan is perfect for warmer weather, with sleeves ending at the elbow and crochet lace along the bottom. The pattern is highly adjustable: if you want longer sleeves, or a longer cardigan as a whole, the construction is easy to modify. Find it on Ravelry here.
4. Coral Ranunculus Vest by Blazenka Simic-Boro
Being relatively new to crochet means that I’m constantly learning new techniques. Imagine my delight at the existence of broomstick lace crochet, a technique that uses a dowel (or broomstick handle) to create beautiful, open lace patterns! Designer Blazenka Simic-Boro uses this technique to create the gorgeous Coral Ranunculus Vest. This circular piece expands outwards from the center, creating an elegant lace pattern on the back of the vest. Find it on Ravelry here.
