21 Quick and Easy Crochet Patterns to Make This Summer

It’s summertime and the living is easy. So we made sure your crochet patterns are easy, too. But the best part? They’re all so good, no one will be able to tell you didn’t spend days working on them. You’ll be able to spend your days in the sun instead.

We’ve got a mix of all the crochet patterns you need to keep your summer in style. Go for a classic like a cute head kerchief, or let your inner boho spirit out with a trendy top. And you can never go wrong with a sundress or a classic crochet summer wrap.

Other people like to read by the pool. We recommend bringing your crochet hook. A warm day relaxing and making a special crochet project sounds pretty perfect to us. Sunscreen, an ice-cold drink, and yarn – that’s a perfect summer recipe.

Since these summer crochet patterns are all so simple to crochet, you might just find yourself making all these pieces. Make some for yourself, make some for your friends – but be sure you make them in time for those sunshiny days.
