Summer is in full swing and having a lightweight, portable project is ideal in the heat and humidity of the coming weeks. It’s also nice to have a few finished projects that you can use and wear in the warmer months. Crocheted mesh is a great fabric choice to fill both these needs!
The Michel Vest would look great paired with a bright tee and capris. Made from half double crochet and chain stitches and worked in a single piece to the armholes this one will fly off your hook. The Longmeadow is a fantastic blend of cotton and microfiber that is soft and cool against the skin.
The Tokyo Vest in Tahki Cotton Classic Lite, a free pattern, is a wonderful layering piece to toss on over a flirty summer dress in the evening. This top is made from 2 simple rectangles and is creatively seemed to create the illusion of a wrap top.
Finally, you’ll need something to carry all your summer finds, be they sea shells, fresh fruits and veggies from the Farmer’s Market, or treasures from a yard sale. Classic Elite has the perfect Market Bag pattern (also Free!) worked up on their Provence yarn.
What’s your favorite lightweight pattern for summer?
