New Crochet Patterns for the Best Spring Ever
Spring means many things: new growth, warmer weather, more sunshine. For many of us, it also means spring cleaning! At this time of year, I always like to take a few days to declutter my home and take stock of what I have and what I need. Spending so much time at home during the winter usually means I’m tired of looking at the same old things around my house—and in my closet.
I’m in luck, though, because we’ve recently released over two dozen patterns that are perfect for warmer weather! If you’re looking for a new project to get on your hook this spring, check out these new patterns. I’ve arranged them by project type, so if you know what you need, head to that section, or browse the whole list and see what inspires you!
You can never have too many crocheted tops! They’re exactly what you need for summer: lightweight, breathable, and oh-so-cute. I love the center motif in the Terra-cotta Tile Top and the light and airy stitches in the Daisy Tank Top. The geometric front and back of the Petalline Tank Top really appeal to me, and I particularly enjoy the surprise floral motifs on the sides!
I love the idea of wearing a cami in a bright contrasting color under the Trellis Tee (pink or yellow, maybe) and the Buttercup Tee (turquoise, I think). And if you’re feeling a little bold, try the Trellis Cold-Shoulder Top—the bell sleeves, high-low hem, and shoulder cutouts are sophisticated and super trendy.
We have accessories for crocheters of all ages and tastes! Need some new jewelry? The playful, beaded Fuchsia Cuff adds a pop of color to any outfit, and the Coral Crochet Earrings are equally at home at brunch with friends or an outdoor concert.
Seeking a shawl for chilly evenings? Look no further! Try the Kaleidoscope Scarf for a splash of vivid color or the Crescent Gradient Shawl for a more subdued look. Or check out the Summer Breeze Shawl—the 100% superwash merino wool is soft and breathable, and the bright orange hue positively screams summer. The Lace Runner Poncho provides a little more coverage but is still light and breathable, and the Cordate Leaf Scarf’s lacy, leafy motifs and subtle green shade are perfect for the warmer months.
Headed to the beach? Get the Playful Swimsuit Cover-Up for a fun and functional piece that will protect you from the sun, and stitch up the cute-yet-practical To Market Bag to carry all supplies you need for a day in the sand. (If you love the bag, get the kit! It’s available in two colors and comes with helpful articles and bonus charts so you can customize your bag.) Need a cover-up for your overly air-conditioned office? Stitch the Sea Current Shrug or the Tigre Zippered Cowl for protection from the arctic air. No matter your summer accessory needs, we’ve got you covered!
For the Kids
School will be out soon, which means plenty of playtime for the kiddos. Make summer extra fun by stitching up Tic-Tac-Toes in the Sand, a crocheted tic-tac-toe board made with beach balls and flip-flops instead of Xs and Os, or the adorable Jasmine Flower Nymph Doll (I love this doll, and she would make the perfect birthday gift for one of my nieces). If you’re traveling, try the Cutest Tunisian Crochet Backpack —it’s practical and fun, and you can customize it with your kiddo’s initial and favorite colors. Speaking of travel: keep the kids warm on planes, trains, and automobiles with the Tulips Cardigan or the Tranquil Sweater. They’ll be warm AND stylish!
Add beauty and a unique touch to your space with a handmade crochet project. Try the Camellia Garden Pillow if you’re feeling bold—it’s exactly what you need to refresh your living room! If you like to add greenery to your space this time of year, stitch up the Little Mats for Spring to place under your new plant friends for an extra pop of color in any room. Or, if you’re like me and tend to accidentally kill plants, try the Simple Succulents mini collection for touch of green without the risk!
Summer nights and early mornings can be a little chilly, so stitch up a light blanket to snuggle under while you’re enjoying your back patio. The Garden Swirl Afghan and the Diamonds and Tassels Afghan are perfect for summer—the colors are bright and pleasing, the motifs are light and airy, and the cotton yarns are cool and breathable.
One of my favorite sounds of summer is bees buzzing around the flowers in my garden. Make bees a part of your summer with our bee-themed patterns! The Honeycomb Table Setting is perfect for warm-weather al fresco dining, but the warm hues will transition well into autumn, so you’ll get plenty of use out of the set. For a subtle nod to our bee friends, try the Flowers for the Bees Scarf or the Queen Bee Throw—both use floral motifs and warm yellow hues reminiscent of honeycomb to evoke these little workaholics.
For the little one in your life, crochet the Queen Bee Stacking Toy. This darling toy has four removable, stackable pieces and no small parts (the face is embroidered), so it’s suitable for kids of all ages. And if you want to make a little something for yourself, get the Love of Bees Notions Bag Set on your hook right now! These cute and practical bags can hold crochet notions, toiletries or makeup, a basic first-aid kit—anything you need when you’re on the go.
I hope these patterns inspire you to crochet something lovely and fun for spring! What’s on your hook this season? Let me know in the comments!
