Summer is one of our favorite times to crochet! We love taking our latest project outside, sitting in the sun and enjoying a relaxing afternoon of stitching. Crochet also makes a great travel companion for long car rides or flights to vacation destinations.
Today we would like to share two sources of summer crochet inspiration with you that are sure to inspire you to pick up your crochet hook and get stitching!
Crochet World magazine’s newsstand special, Creative Crochet in a Day is filled with 40 projects that can be crocheted in 12 hours or less by most crocheters.
We love the Go Granny Bag designed by Jennifer E. Ryan in Berroco Weekend, a worsted weight cotton/acrylic blend that comes in a great range of colors so you can customize your bag to suit your wardrobe.
