Bobble Kerchief -free crochet pattern-

Image
Pattern Paradise always has the most beautiful photos!  Besides being a great photo, this pattern for a crochet hair kerchief is absolutely lovely!  I agree with the designer that these were popular in our youth, and I do also see a comeback being made with these.  They are cute, easy to make, and work up fast!  I love they they can hide a bad hair day!

Granny Square Tunic Top -free crochet pattern-

Image
Granny squares are fun and can be used in so many different ways, like this pretty tank styled crochet tunic top!  A great aspect of this pattern is that, even though worsted weight yarn was used, you can easily implement your own yarn weight and adjust the size.  Of course a light weight yarn would require more work, however, would be more suitable for summer.  I would love to give this one a try! This is a Ravelry download.

I've got pineapples and summer on my mind, and this pretty shawl style cowl fits!  Using a light DK weight yarn, you will easily get a grasp on this version of the crochet pineapple stitch and turn it into something beautiful.  This would make a great spring/summer scarf or cowl, or even wear it as a shawl!

"Oooh...ahhhhh!" Look at this long crocheted pineapple skirt!  I love crochet wearables, especially dresses and skirts, and this one is stunning.  The designer assures that a dedicated beginner could make this skirt, I think the biggest challenge is time. But time well used, the end result is marvelous.  The designer includes diagrams with a photo tutorial. You'll be envied when you wear this skirt!

Corner to Corner Baby Blanket -free crochet pattern-

Image
My favorite colors right here, in this awesome corner to corner crochet blanket!  This particular design is for a baby blanket but would be easy to make larger.  However, this is still pretty amazing as a baby blanket, I love the diagonal pattern, it's sharp and trendy and would look great in baby's room!  What I love even more about crochet baby decor is that you can make it match your theme easily by using whatever colors you want.  This would be a lovely baby gift.

If you have extra sock yarn laying around and really don't want to make socks, then try this cute swirly crochet necklace!  This fun pattern uses light sock yarn and a small hook to get the chains to curl properly.  I really like this idea and can think of many ways to make it my own, by adding beads, and different colors.

Image
If you're an avid crocheter, you probably know all about DROPS Design from Garnstudio.  Based out of Norway, with over 100 stores selling their yarns across the world, they have one of the most beautiful assortments of free patterns, crochet and knit alike!  Their website is easy to use with 17 language translations and an easy to use pattern search.

I love looking at all of DROPS Design's patterns, but today I am focusing on summer!  When I think of summer, I think of beautiful white flowing and lacy styled garments with a relaxed causal vibe. Some of these patterns are new to 2016 and some you may have seen in the past, but they are all the perfect picture of summer.  Enjoy!
