20 Super Cute Summer Crochet Ideas

I don’t know about you, but when the cold weather fades, I tend to put away my beloved crochet hook and yarn. Chunky scarves, hats, and thick blankets are tucked away for a few months, so what’s left to crochet?

The answer is: lots! Now is the time for tank tops, beach bags, cute sunglasses holders, and cold beverage coozies. Boho items like flowy vests and bags are also a must-have crochet item in the summer, so if you know your way around a granny square, you’re ready to rock.

Add these 20 projects to your summer crochet bucket list–you may discover your new favourite crochet project!
