Spring Into Summer With 5 Perfect Crochet Projects
The weather in both spring and summer can be unpredictable. Since this is unfortunately true in many parts of the world, it behooves us to be as prepared as possible. Fortunately, Interweave Crochet Spring 2019 has crochet projects that are perfect for all types of weather.
In order to demonstrate this point, we’ve compiled a list of 5 projects that you can use to both dress up an outfit when the weather is nice and keep you warm when it’s not so nice. Hopefully, these projects will spark your interest just as they did ours.
1. Mercato Hat
If you’re looking for a cute cap that is perfect for cool spring and summer days, look no further than the Mercato Hat by Kristina Olson. Made with an alpaca/silk blend (affiliate link), this hat is sure to make your hair stand on end with anticipation as you get ready to put it on.
2. Museo Wrap
Talk about masterful! This wrap by Ina Jitari fits that description with ease. Join-as-you-go motifs, as well as filler and edge motifs, work together to create this wrap that will not only dress up any outfit, but will also keep you warm on chilly spring and summer nights.
3. Albergo Top
So cute! This keyhole-style top can be worn by itself on warm days or over a short or long-sleeved top on chillier days. Either way, this versatile piece is one you’ll definitely want in your wardrobe.
This spiraling beauty will make you the envy of everyone around you. You’ll use a fingering-weight yarn and a size F hook (affiliate link) to stitch double crochets and post stitches as you increase your way to the end.
5. Porto Top
Open sides and a ribbed base are combined to create this top that’s perfect to wear over everything from a tank top to a turtleneck. Stitched using a cotton/linen blend, this top is perfect for the office or a night on the town.
