Style Watch: Crocheted Accessories for a Sun-Soaked Summer

My favorite time of year is finally here! The sounds of children playing outside and the smell of fresh mowed grass bring joy to my heart. Summer wouldn’t be summer without warm evenings at the ballpark or weekends spent in the garden. It is time to take advantage of the extended days and temperate nights. Bring on the fun, the sun, and the gorgeous crocheted accessories! The Filigree Sunshield and Sun-Kissed Hat are must-have accessories when attending the ubiquitous backyard barbecue or lounging poolside.

The Filigree Sunshield from Interweave Crochet Accessories 2014 is an airy doily worked on to a parasol frame. Any brand of size-10 mercerized cotton yarn will work for this pattern; when deciding on a color, consider using aqua, yellow, or rose. This sunshade is the essence of grace and femininity. Pair it with a lightweight maxi dress and gladiator sandals.

Protect your face from the sun with a stylish portrait crochet hat—the Sun Kissed Hat from Interweave Crochet Summer 2016. Any sportweight cotton yarn will do for this pattern.

Millinery wire and heavy button thread are also required to complete this project. This bonnet would look great in white, cream, or rose tones. If the flower adornment isn’t up your alley, feel free to omit it—the sunhat will look great with or without it. Deck out a lightweight sundress or beach cover-up with this stand-out accessory.

At the next pool party or outdoor wedding, show off your style and class with these two incredible accessories. Prove to the world that there is more to crochet than scarves and cable sweaters. Dispel myths, and remember to always . . .

Keep on hookin’ on,
