Catch the wave of stylish patterns in this pattern-packed issue — more than 30 projects to choose from. Where will you start?
Dear Crochet Friend,
When the weather turns warm and breezy, you want to play it cool. Our Coastal Cool Crochet Collection includes more than 30 projects — from charming cover-ups to fun & flirty dresses to more wraps than you can wear in a season! Add to that some stylish totes and lovely accessories, and you have the makings of almost everything you could need for summer wear! Not super-skilled at crochet yet? No worries! More than half of these projects are rated easy (but they don’t look it!). There’s a project (or two or three) for crocheters of all skill levels. Let’s take a peek at some of what’s in this Coastal Cool Crochet Collection!
Sun, sand, water, waves. Sunrise. Sunset. Long walks on the beach (you gotta love ‘em!). We have a little bit of something for all those times on the beach so you have just the right kind of coverage.
Be ready to swim at a moment’s notice when you’re wearing the Clearwater Cover Up. This light and beautiful piece is perfect for a walk along the water or hanging out by the pool. It’s the perfect combination of comfort and class in one design — and it’s rated easy.
Maybe you need something to top off an outfit at the end of the day as the cool of evening starts coming on. Our La Jolla Swoncho features a lopsided lace stitch pattern an intermediate crocheter (or an adventurous beginner!) could finish in a weekend.
Don’t forget about the little ones! Our Shoreline Cold-Shoulder Tee is the perfectly stylish toddler top. Worked in linen stitch with cotton yarn, this tee has just the right amount of sweetness, with lacy scallops at the ends of the sleeves and along the hemline. Advanced crocheters will find this project very satisfying — expect big smiles from the little wearer!
Other cover ups in our Coastal Cool Crochet Collection include cardigans, tops, and tunics — all ranging in complexity from easy to advanced. You’re sure to find just the right cool cover up to add to your handmade collection!
Who says dresses can’t be crocheted? Not us! Two of our dress patterns are rated easy and can take you from beach play to a night out. The Bayside Dress features a mesmerizing shell pattern with colors that pop! Lovely, trendy, and easy to make, the only other thing you’ll want to make is reservations!
For a lazy day around the pool or at the beach, the Sarasota Beach Dress is just the thing. It’s light and airy, and each color panel features a different stitch. This is a great Intermediate pattern for crocheters who want to add a little something elegant to their summer-wear wardrobe.
And, of course, little ones like to stay cool in the summer — and it’s always a good idea to have just one more piece on hand. Our Beach Glass Dress is an adorable A-line dress that’s sturdier than it looks, thanks to the crochet grit stitch. Crocheters of all skill levels can make this dress with ease (you might even want to make two!).
Let’s be honest: you can’t really have too many wraps, shawls, scarves, or cowls. There are so many possibilities! And in our Coastal Cool Crochet Collection, we offer you almost a dozen choices, with engaging projects for all skill levels!
Our Sparkling Waters Wrap is just the thing to take the chill off an early evening. Worked in a fabulous fan stitch, you’ll enjoy watching this piece come together. It’s the perfect addition to an outfit when you need a little something extra.
The Shoreline Scarf is the ultimate in customizable components! This scarf is worked from a corner, so you can make it as long as you like! This is a perfect beginner project, with just three stitches to make this beautiful, draping scarf.
Combine textured shell stitches with a netted border to get the beautiful garment that is our Sea to It Shawl. This intermediate project is worked from the top down, which makes it easy to track your progress. You’ll add the lacy netted border as a finishing touch. It’s a mermaid princess delight!
Get Carried Away
What’s a trip to the beach without collecting a few shells? And you better have somewhere to put them — try our Blue Sea Star Bag! This intermediate pattern works up nicely using cotton cake yarns. It comes out light and airy, but it’s strong enough to hold whatever you need to take to or from the beach. The sea star flowers give the bag some extra pizzazz.
Maybe you’d like a sturdy beach tote that makes a bold statement. The pattern for our Boho Tote is rated easy and features a sturdy single crochet fabric topped with an exuberant lacy mandala that you can add as a final flourish. This tote features bamboo handles for easy carrying and a fabric lining to keep things sand-free.
We also have a matching set of boho bag and espadrilles. Both patterns are rated easy, and you can step out in style after a weekend of work.
Get a Little Glitz Going
No outfit is complete with a little added flair, so why not make some? Our Huron Headbands are so easy to make, you’ll want one to go with more than one outfit. When you’re ready to make a bold jewelry statement, make our La Plage Bracelet inspired by larger granny projects. Some simple metal jewelry findings will give your bracelet a professional look. Or you can take the beach with you wherever you go with our Sand Dollar Earrings. You’ll love their delicate design that can easily go with any light summer outfit. Show off your crochet skills at your next gathering with this dangling beauties — the pattern’s rated easy!
This is just a sampling of the dozens of projects you’ll find in our Coastal Cool Crochet Collection. On top of all the inspiring patterns, we offer you two product roundups with a look at crochet tools with an easy breezy beach theme — yarn, yarn bowls, hooks, stitch markers and more!
