Having the skills to make beautiful creations can be both a blessing and a curse. It’s wonderful to have the ability to make gorgeous items for those I love, but sometimes I simply want to make something for ME! Lately, as summer gets closer and the evenings get warmer, I’ve been daydreaming about beautiful, lacy skirts, and light-weight evening cardigans.
Will you join me in making something special just for YOU this summer? Here are 10 free designs that I’m dying to make (some knit and some crochet)….I’m probably going to have to pick just one, but I haven’t decided yet.
Tell me which one you’re going to make in the comments.
This beautiful jacket features a gorgeous lace design and would be the perfect light button-up for cool summer evenings. Elegant, classic, and fun – knitting the Grace jacket would be time well spent this summer.
This cute, crochet pull-over makes a fun and unique summer top.
I really love this classic-looking fitted summer top. Make sure you check out the Ravelry projects on this one – so many cute tops there made with all different colors!
I love the style of this Crochet Chevron Lace Cardigan! I’m a little obsessed with chevron lace lately, so this one is pretty high on my to-do list 🙂
There is something so classy about a knitted skirt…..I couldn’t tell you exactly why that is, but I love the look, and this style is so popular right now! One of the best parts of this pattern is the variety of sizes included.
The floral top on this is so intricate and gorgeous. A head-turner for sure!
This cardi is the perfect addition to any dressy outfit this summer. Adds just a little bit of handmade flair. I always love the lacy leaf look that they pattern features.
I love the design elements and the style in general of this crochet dress. It’s hard to find super cute crochet dress patterns, but this one certainly fits the bill!
Perhaps I’m just super attracted to lace today, but this is another gorgeous top that I’d love to work up. This one is just fancy enough to really make a statement.
Another beautiful evening design. I adore the floral pattern all throughout, and I’m a sucker for buttons!
