It can be difficult to find a good project to work on during the warm summer months. Sure, come fall and winter we all have some patterns stored up for warm afghans we can snuggle under, but the idea of working on a big blanket during a heat wave isn’t nearly as pleasant. So what are some light and fun projects we can whip up in the meantime? I’m glad you asked! We’ve collected ten of our favorite summer crochet patterns just for you. Which one will you work on first?
