The Peony Purse is high on my list of must-have crochet projects. The ruffles create a fun look that’s perfect for summer! It will go beautifully with my typical weekend uniform, sandals and a tank top, and the lining instructions are simple enough that I’m planning to add some cute fabric to the inside.
If you’re heading to the pool or beach to beat the heat, the Diamond Swimsuit Wrap is an awesome way to show off your crafty skills and add the finishing touch to your swimwear. The adjustable size ensures a perfect fit, and the buttons add a cool design element.
Knitters, have you been drooling over the Pear Sorbet Shawl? The stunning lace panel is easier to stitch up than you’d think, so this project would make a great travel companion. I love wearing shawls in the summer because they are light and easy to carry, but they offer the perfect amount of coverage when the air conditioner is blasting.
The Cameron Hoodie would make a stylish and casual swimsuit cover-up, but it would also look amazing paired with jeans or shorts. The fabric is light and comfortable, and this piece would transition nicely into fall layered over long sleeves.
The short-sleeved Wispy Willow Cardigan looks beautiful over a camisole or summer dress. Knit with CoBaSi by HiKoo, the fabric has incredible drape. The lace panels are simply striking, giving this pattern a special place in my heart.
