The Best of 2023 Crochet Patterns from I Like Crochet has 25 fabulous projects for you: From tops and tunics to dusters and decorations, there’s something in this issue for crocheters of all experience levels. Let’s take a peek at some of what’s in the Best of 2023 Crochet Patterns from I Like Crochet!
It’s never too early to think about making a new sweater. You can create a beautiful and intricate-looking crochet sweater with just one row repeat! Our Adeline Crew Sweater is an easy-rated pattern that gives maximum style with minimum effort. This is an excellent pattern choice for crocheters of all experience levels. This will be your go-to sweater when the weather’s chilly. And a classic sweater gets a fun update with our Cailyn Henley Sweater. Patterned after a classic henley sweater, this piece works up side to side to give you a comfortable new take on a timeless style.
Top of the Line Tops
Now is a great time to start planning a couple new spring wardrobe pieces. Start with the Maci Seamless Crochet Top, with its lacy yoke and ruffle. This top has a lovely drape, loose sleeves, and airy edgings — and it’s seamless! If you’re thinking ahead to summer, make our Solina Bold Shoulder Top, with its flirty feel, feminine design, and one-shoulder boldness! Other top-of-the-line tops include the Luisa Scalloped Filet Crochet Topper and Anisa Mesh Tunic.
Make yourself the perfect lacy tee shirt topper with our Georgina Motif Vest. A lacy floral square adorns each front panel and the back, and it’s easy to use a simple filet crochet to adjust the size just the way you like it. Crochet this in two shades, the way we did, or make a bold vest to contrast with your favorite layering top. The Eleanor White Boxy Cardigan is an eye-catching layer you’ll want to keep within easy reach. The captivating cable and twisted double crochet stitches give this cardigan great texture and visual interest. Make this cardigan your next statement piece!
Cozy Does It
Create something cozy with our Winterberry Red Ruana. The pattern is easygoing, providing a satisfying crochet experience. And you can wrap yourself up in your new creation when you’re done! Or take the granny square to a new level with our Hailey Hooded Cardigan. It’s worked both in the round and flat. Crocheters looking for a challenge will love this pattern! Advanced crocheters will enjoy the creative customization appeal of our Winter Whirlwind Blanket Shawl. You pick the colors, size, and combination of stitches to make this shawl uniquely yours!
Make Yourself at Home
Flower power is back in style with our Lottie Retro Flower Baby Blanket. These bold flower panels are worked individually (can you say travel project?) and then crocheted together. Finish the whole thing off with a multi-colored fringe and you’ve got a cool baby blanket with no sign of pastels. Groovy!
Set your sofa free with a new throw pillow (or two!) when you make our bold and bright Sundown Pillow. You’ll love the textured herringbone stitch in the middle, and the tapestry crochet will really make that zig-zag pattern stand out!
Or get a jump on holiday crochet and make our Evergreen Quilt-Inspired Crochet Table Runner or our Nostalgic Crochet Light-Up Christmas Tree. Can you really start holiday crochet too early? I don’t think so!
Long and Short of It
If you’re ready for something elegant and airy, our River Walk Crochet Duster is just the thing. The all-over leaf lace pattern is easier than it looks, making this a very intuitive pattern. For the full airy effect, finish off this duster with a trellis-style fringe; it looks lovely, and it gives you chance to try your hand at macramé! Or make our Crochet Transitions Duster with lots of different stitches to let your creativity flow!
Looking for more lace? Look no farther than out Viola Pineapple Crochet Maxi Skirt. This design is perfectly stylish for an evening stroll. You’ll love the feel and flow of this skirt. Or go for our Ramona Granny Stitch Dress — a 2-weekend project that’s rated easy. Go for the groovy granny stripes and you’ll be looking good!
Even if you don’t love wearing hats, our Aren Basket Weave Hat will win over the most reluctant hat wearers! It’s cozy, comfy, and you can make it in a day! For those who are solidly in the no-hat camp, we have a fun and easy pattern to let you amp up your crochet skills. Make our Ice Breeze Twisted Headband for yourself, your friends, your family. This easy pattern is perfect for your crochet-on-the-go bag!
We have a fabulous, fun project that’s just packed with possibilities. Our Kiki Crochet Hood is versatility personified: It’s a cowl. It’s a dickie. It’s a hood. How will you wear it?
Nothing says spring like a new pair of earrings. Make the Florence Double Flower Drop Earrings from lightweight cotton thread, join the flowers with a jump ring, and add them to an earring hook. You could be done in an hour! Share the anticipation of spring and make some of these earrings for friends and family (or make yourself a colorful bouquet to make each day special). Pair your new earrings with our Bouquet Bobby Pins and Barrette for a fully floral look!
Maybe you need a quick and cute over-the-shoulder bag to carry your essentials. Then make our Pamela Granny Square Bum Bag. This bag features floral granny squares that are just bursting with the feel of springtime. Get your hooks out and finish this fun little bag in a weekend.
