Set your own summer style with these great patterns!

Let’s take summer by storm with bright colors, bold stripes, and tantalizing textures! Our June 2023 issue is jam-packed with possibilities. Check out over 70 incredible patterns, from indoor décor to beautiful garments for work, play, and just plain fun in the sun!

The decorative detail, wooden beads, and casual tassels give our Boho Medallion Bag a laid-back look. You don’t need a lot of color when you have great texture. This eclectic cross-body bag can be finished in a weekend, ready for your next adventure.

Take your cardigan game up a level with the Coletta Cardigan, featuring a row of beautiful motifs worked front and back. Double crochet shapes the body, finishing off the three-quarter sleeves with a row of motifs at the cuffs. You’ll love the look and feel of this cardigan!

For a lazy day around the pool or at the beach, the Sarasota Beach Dress is just the thing. It’s light and airy, and each color panel features a different stitch. This is a great Intermediate pattern for crocheters who want to add a little something elegant to their summer-wear wardrobe.

How about a new clutch for that upcoming special occasion? Our Amelia Clutch makes a bold statement no matter what color you choose! We made ours in vibrant pink. What makes this chunky, textured clutch stand out is ribbon textile yarn. Finish it off with the bold lining that suits you.

Need a fresh burst of color inside to celebrate summer? Spice up your favorite chair with our dazzling Retro Flower Cushion. This wildly colorful pattern uses just two motifs in a blaze of color combinations. As a bonus, the pattern uses the five basic crochet stitches — a perfect project for anyone from beginner to expert!

Get that sun-kissed look and feel with our lovely Soleil Stripes Tank. Partial stripes look random, but they’re perfectly planned and placed for a whimsical summertime feel. Pair this tank with your favorite skirt or jeans.

Our Sonic Swirl Shawl echoes the way air can swirl and carry sound with the twisting, undulating waves that radiate out from the center. Our version is made in a subtly variegated grey yarn, making this airy shawl is reminiscent of a dusty windstorm. You pick the colorway that inspires you.

Dreamy, drapey cardigans, flirty skirts and dresses, terrific totes and more! Which project will you create first? Find one today in the June 2023 issue of I Like Crochet.
