Annie’s has always released knit and crochet patterns, offering many great designs over the years, but now they’re doing something a little bit different and it’s super interesting to see. Annie’s is working with leading knit and crochet designers, including lead designer Lena Skvagerson, to create a curated collection of patterns suited specifically for the summer season. It’s about more than just a pattern or even a set of patterns; it’s about evoking a mood or emotion that is relevant to the season of the year, similar to what we see in high fashion.
Summer seems to be officially here. What that means in San Francisco is that it’s suddenly really cold and windy and hard to find the sun! Yep, it’s all a little backwards weather-wise here every year, but that’s okay. I’ve lived here almost ten years now so I know what to expect. However, that doesn’t stop me from occasionally daydreaming about places where the beaches are actually warm (like when I was in Belize!) so in honor of that today I thought I’d share a roundup of projects that combine crochet with driftwood, that lovely wood from the beach!
Did you know that May is National Bike Month? Crochet and bicycling can go hand in hand. Of course, you probably shouldn’t crochet while you’re on the bike but you can definitely crochet for your bike. A bicycle decorated with one of a kind crochet is a beautiful, personalized work of art. Here are some photos of bicycle crochet to inspire you!
I’ve got hammocks on the brain so I thought I’d hunt down a roundup of crocheted hammocks worth taking a rest in! Relax by crafting one and then keep relaxing all summer long.
Outdoor music festivals are a common place to spot great crochet items on fun-loving people. This treasury is a curated collection of items that would be perfect to wear at a place like Coachella!
Ambika Boutique has gorgeous Angora rabbit crochet winter clothes as well as a terrific line of crochet swimwear.
I adore the simple summery beauty of this great crochet summer hat from CreativeDragonfly.
