Summer Tees Crochet Pattern Roundup
 
Don’t forget to pin this post for later!
 

 

Hi everyone, it’s been a very strange summer so far. With the virus keeping people indoors it’s hard to feel like its Summer in our air-conditioned homes. If you are like me you are probably still making some winter wear you started last September when you swore it would be ready to wear for the snow! With that in mind, I decided to gather and share my favourite fast Summer shirt makes that would be ready before the season changes. Most of the Crochet Tees are made in a nice airy texture making them good for early Autumn also.
 
This post is the first in a series of roundups, aimed to bring you some beautiful new patterns from your new favourite designers. If you want to be alerted to when a new round up releases sign up to my newsletter here.

 

Free Crochet Tee Patterns

 
1. Crochet Summer Romance Tee, by Blue Star Crochet
 
Crochet Lace T shirt
 
To start our round-up I have chosen the Summer Romance Tee by the lovely Veronika. This top is made in two easily seamed flat pieces so is super fast to knock out in a couple of days. I love the fit of this lacy top and how complex it looks. Head over to the Blue Star Crochet blog to see the free pattern, or to support the designer by purchasing the downloadable pattern.
 

2. The Peplum Summer Top, by Knitting with Chopsticks

5. The Shelby Top, by Desert Blossom Crafts

Ok, so I may be biased when it comes to anything purple, but look at how gorgeous Rachels lace is! I love how flowy this shirt is, and even more, it was made with Darn Good Yarn Linen yarn. Head over to Desert Blossom Crafts to get the free pattern.
 
 

6. The Two-Tone Tee with Ties, by Crochet with Mary Beth

7. The Wandering Free Summer Top, by A Crocheted Simplicity

This next one is a personal favourite. The simple repeat and lines of this tee make it gorgeous as an everyday top and a party top for Autumn. The construction of the sleeves also makes it super breathable in hot weather. Get the free pattern by A Crocheted Simplicity here.

Sneaky Embroidery

Embroidered Roses 

This is my second square for the In Bloom Blanket CAL. Today I chose to use a mix of crochet and embroidery. I love doing crossover projects and the best part of this is the embroidery is so simple you do not need to be an expert sewer to make these roses!
To grab this square as a free PDF download, head over to the main CAL page to grab the download code, then use that code in my Ravelry store. (Valid 4/27/2020 until 11am EST 4/28/2020).


Supplies

This pattern uses Mighty Stitch which was generously donated by WeCrochet to each of the designers in the In Bloom CAL

For this square you will need the colours;
Alfalfa, Cream, Mulberry and Sky
Hook: 4mm
Notions: Yarn needle, stitch marker, measuring tape, scissors.

Gauge
4×4’ = 19 stitches by 20 rows of sc.

Abbreviations
Ch. Chain
Dc. Double crochet
Sc. Single crochet
St. Stitch

Set up

To make main square.
In Cream Ch 36. Turn.
Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook, sc 4, *dc 5, sc 5*. Repeat * across. Ch3, turn (36sts).
Row 2: Skip first sc, dc 4, *sc 5, dc 5*. Repeat * across. Ch 1, turn (36sts).
Row 3: Sc 5 * dc 5, sc 5*. Repeat * across. Ch 3, turn (36sts).
Row 4-30: Repeat rows 2-3 until you reach row 30.
Finish leaving a long tail. Weave in ends.

To Add Roses.
For the roses we are incorporating an embroidery technique. You can add as many or a few roses to the square as you like. I chose to add 5 to my square.
Step 1: Create a star shape using 5 straight stitches, I made mine roughly 1 inch each, if you want smaller roses make these stitches shorter. Using a contrasting colour of yarn (this makes it easier to see where you are weaving in the next step).
Step 2: Using your main colour for your rose, thread a yarn needle with a generous amount of yarn. Start by weaving under your first stitch, then over the second. Continue this around the 5 stitches.
Step 3: Continue weaving under and over each consecutive stitch until your rose is nice and full and the guide stitches are covered.
Step 4: Finish off by stitching under the rose a couple of times and cut yarn.
Adding Leaves


Using Alfalfa attach yarn to square as close to the edge of the rose using a surface sc. Surface Sc 3 more times. Ch 1, turn, going down one side of the previous sc, sc, dc, hdc, sc in each sc across. Slip st into main square, cut yarn and weave in ends.
In my example I have shown what it looks like to have two leaves on each rose, one leaf or non. I personally prefer the one leaf, but this is completely customizable.
This Square is part of the In-Bloom Blanket CAL. Head over to my blog to view all of the floral squares we have on offer! Don’t forget to tag any of your completed makes with #bearrye, #inbloomblanketcal or #springbloomsblanketcal

Tie off leaving a long tail, this is to be able to stitch onto your main square. I made a total of 3 bluebells, but you could make up to 6 to attach onto the main square.

Attaching your bluebells.

Using long tail sew the ends through the square near the colour 2 portion of the design. This gives the appearance that the bluebells are dangling off the main stalk. Repeat across for each bluebell, sew in ends and cut to finish.

In Bloom, a Spring Blanket CAL

 

In Bloom, A Spring Themed Blanket Crochet Along 2020

 
Wow, I’m sure this Spring is not turning out how anyone was expecting it to. With most of us stuck inside social distancing this is the best time for us to turn to our hobbies to fill the time. I first started crocheting as a form of therapy to keep my mind calm in times of stress and have felt myself turning to this to keep my days feeling normal in these uncertain times.
 
For the month of April me and some amazing designers have collaborated together to make an amazing mystery blanket that we hope you will all enjoy. The theme all the designers were given was “In bloom” and they did not disappoint when it came to creativity.
 

How does it work?

From April 1st until April 30th each designer will present an 8×8 inch square representing the Spring season. All these squares can be combined together to create a personalised blanket. You can use all of them, or a combination of your favourites to create an amazing heirloom.
 
Each days featured designer will be giving their design away as a FREE PDF download. To get these free downloads visit page each day of the month, where the pattern will be posted daily at 8am EST. If you would like to get daily reminders for your squares you can follow this page by signing up to my newsletter and follow along on Instagram.
 
Spread the word. Pin this page to your favourite Pinterest Board
 
Spring blanket CAL Pin
 
 

What do I need to do?

 
Every day you will visit this post where you will find the latest pattern. Under each pattern, there will be instructions including a CODE to get the FREE PDF. You will be lead through to the designers’ blog where you will find within their page text that reads “Click HERE to download the free PDF download”. Some designers will be including this free download either directly from their site or through Ravelry.

 

Supplies

To make it easier to follow along all designers worked from the same yarn palette. Some squares could include up to 4 colours, while others may have only 1.
We used Mighty Stitch yarn, which we were very lucky to have donated to us by We Crochet.

The colours chosen were as follows,

Alfalfa, Ivy, Mulberry, Wisteria, Fairytale, Bubblegum, Celestial, Sky, Cream, Oyster and Canary.

If you would like to join in the CAL, join the CAL group over on Facebook. This is where you can ask any questions you may have on the patterns and share your blanket progress. You can also Make along with us on Instagram using the hashtags #inbloomblanketcal #springbloomsblanketcal and #bearrye .

The Flora Scarf


The Flora Scarf


Can anyone else believe its spring already? After a very disappointing New York Winter I am ready for Spring. This lacey scarf was another step out of my colour comfort zone. I am so proud of how this Pistachio Green came out.

What do I need?

To make this scarf all you need is Paintbox Yarns DK cotton or comparable size 3 Yarn. I used 3 colours to create this striped scarf, but you can easily add extra colours to make the scarf wider, creating yourself a shawl.

Colours used in pictured scarf;
Robins Egg Blue (Colour C)

If you would prefer to read the pattern unhindered it is also available as an ad free PDF on Ravelry. Click here to purchase.If you like scarves head over to Ravelry to grab the Sunny Sorbet Shawl exclusive to Ravelry. Subscribe to my newsletter using the link on the side of this page to receive a 15% off coupon to my Ravelry store!

I am offering this pattern as a free PDF download once again with the E’claire Makery Spring Blog hop for anyone who missed out earlier this month. Head over here to get the download code, then go here to redeem for your free PDF pattern

Hook: F, 4mm
Notions: Yarn needle, stitch marker, measuring tape, scissors.
Size

Attaching Motifs
This scarf will be made using a very simple motif technique. To make it easier to follow you will attach the motifs together as you go. You can create all the squares at once and then attach all at the same time but I find it easier to attach as you go.

Flora Motif
(If making all motifs at once and attaching at the end create 17 motifs row 1-3 in each colour).

To create the size scarf made in the pictures make 17 motifs in each colour and attach as you go.
To finish you will have a few ends to sew in. This I feel is the most time consuming part of the pattern. Well there you have it, enjoy your light spring scarf!

Lacey Tunisian Headband

This month I’m sharing my first Tunisian Crochet Pattern as part of an amazing event.

I’m participating in Noor’s Knits’ Easy TC Blog Hop running from Feb 7th to 25th! A new pattern will be released EVERY day from Monday to Friday as a FREE download available for 24 hours only! The patterns featured are perfect projects to try your hand at Tunisian crochet. The best part is that all of the projects being released in this blog hop can be made with a regular crochet hook!

The Easy Lacey Tunisian Headband

I cannot get over the stitch definition on this headband. It’s the perfect spring hair accessory and a great seller at craft fairs!

What do I need?

 All you need to make this beauty it is less than a skein of DK yarn.

To make pictured pattern;

1 skein of Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK in Dusty Rose

Hook: 4.5mm hook

You can use a normal hook for this pattern, but make sure it is a hook that does not have an added grip handle otherwise you will not have space to hold the stitches.

Now that the blog hop is over, head over to my Ravelry to access the pattern for only $3
