Take a peak into my inspiration for spring and summer crochet projects. This is my virtual mood board and I am thrilled to be sharing it with you!
As I have said before, I ADORE fall and winter, but there is truly something so refreshing, light, and magnetic about spring. This time of year, inspiration floods into my brain even more than during the chillier months. This year, I wanted to do something different and instead of just writing my ideas and inspiration down in my planner, I wanted to create a digital inspiration board AND share it with you all!
I had so much time fun putting together this blogpost and I hope you enjoy it!🏼
Basket bags were definitely trending a couple of years ago, but I personally believe that they are a timeless accessory. They provide the perfect summery and boho aesthetic to any outfit!
I actually designed the Harbor Bag at the height of this trend, and to this day it is one of my most used crochet pieces. I intentionally designed the bag to be SUPER sturdy and after so much wear and carrying around heavy loads, I am beyond impressed with how well it has held up.
For the Harbor Bag, I used Lion Brand Rewind (my FAVORITE yarn for bags!). I have a full skein and a partial skein left over, and I didn’t know what I wanted to do with the yarn until this year, when I decided I wanted to make a smaller purse version.
Stay tuned! Hopefully a pattern will be coming this summer! 😉
Every time I walk into Trader Joe’s I am tempted to spend all my money on their gorgeous flowers! Floral designs and details aren’t something that I have incorporated into many projects, but it is definitely I want to start doing!
I want to be able to figure out cute ways to add subtle floral details through both stitches and maybe even embroidery on top of crochet pieces.
If you have browsed any of my patterns, you will know this is right up my alley as I adore adding feminine details to my projects.
I know that cottage core and mushrooms were a 2021 trend (yes, I am usually late to these trends), but I couldn’t resist adding cute mushrooms to my list of projects. I adore the cottage core aesthetic and while I haven’t done a lot to initiate the aesthetic in my own life, I am starting this year with cute little crochet mushrooms!
I know that this will be a great project to use up yarn scraps, and seriously, how cute would a little basket of crochet mushrooms be?!?!
I love stripes. It’s that simple. They are such a versatile and timeless style. Also for a girl like me who tends to stick to one color projects (anyone else?!), stripes are a simple and easy way to add in one or two more colors to a project while still remaining classy and stylish.
I actually already have a project planned for this category! I am participating in Sewrella Yarn’s Spring Make-A-Long, and I’ll be crocheting the Mariniere Sweater.

I’m just going to say it – I adore ruffles. They are a simple way to elevate a minimal piece to the next level. I have literally so many ideas for spring tops that use ruffles and I know I am going to have a difficult time choosing what idea I actually want to add to my project queue (lol I have enough awareness to know that I can’t make all of my ideas😅).
