Summer Clothing Crochet Patterns

Ah, summer, the warmest season of the year. Some people think the summer months are bit too warm, but it really depends on where you're from. If you live in the south, you're probably right. The heat and humidity can be just a bit too much at times and your first instinct is to stay inside. Even in the north, it can be a challenge to beat the heat while still looking stylish.

Whatever your reason for working up some fun crochet clothing patterns this summer may be, I guarantee that we have a really valuable collection here for you. This list of 30+ Summer Clothing Crochet Patterns includes some of the best crochet tops, summer sweater crochet patterns, and cover ups for the beach or pool. We've even included patterns for crochet dresses and skirt patterns to show off your sense of style from head to toe. Plus, work up a summer hat or any of the featured crochet accessories to excentuate your look, no matter what outfit you're wearing.

Take a look around these fun summer crochet wearables to find the best pattern for you. Crochet patterns you can wear are probably some of the best you can ever work up. Even later in the fall, you can wear a cute crochet top with a sweater over it as it gets colder. All of these versatile patterns are perfect for you to work up during your vacation, a sunny Sunday afternoon, or a night in with a TV movie.
