Summer = small crochet projects

Summer crochet projects by Little Monkeys Designs

One summer I crocheted a King size wool blanket for our bed. Never again! At least not in the summer! Not sure what I was thinking except that I really wanted to finish my winter blanket. It was a little warm crocheting it, even sitting in the AC and under a fan!!

Summer is the perfect time for smaller projects. They work up quickly, and can be a great way to use up your yarn stash.

Quick and easy projects are great for a road trip. 

Small blankets and other projects don't get hot in your lap as you are crocheting them. 

Cute bags and clutches can be crocheted and used on a summer vacation.

Projects that are quickly finished leave time for other warm weather adventures.

Here are some of my recent favorite summer crochet projects:
