Creative ideas for fun in the sun!

Spring has already come a long way and summer is finally in sight! We are looking forward to these sunny days, because summer is our favourite season. In this Hoooked blog we'll introduce you to some of our favourite patterns that without fail get us in the mood for summer. You'll find patterns for crochet and macramé. Since we use different kinds of yarns and techniques, there is something for everyone in this short list! We hope you get a lot of inspiration and get started with your favourite summer pattern! We hope you enjoy our top four creative summer projects!

1. Crochet ice creams

Another long- lasting favourite project. These mega-sized crocheted ice creams serve as pillow or as a funny statement for your garden seat. These ice creams are easy to crochet for anyone with a basic knowledge of crochet. Bring the summer into your home and crochet an XXL ice cream! These maxi ice creams are crocheted with Hoooked Zpagetti.

2. Crochet summer beach bag

With this free pattern for the crochet bag Biscaia you will be making your next favourite beach bag. The bag is made with Eco Barbante, a sturdy recycled cotton yarn, ideal for crocheting bags. This beach bag is big enough for a large bath towel and all your beach gear. With a long handle attached, this bag can also be worn crosswise. This way you can keep your hands free for a summer cocktail on the terrace of your favourite beach club! The pattern is suitable for seasoned crocheters. Are you an absolute beginner? Then ask a crochet friend to help you get started!

3. Crochet fanny pack

This is an ideal bag for on the go. Do you like to keep your important belongings close by? Then crochet this cool "bum bag” and keep your hands free. This crochet fanny bag holds all your essentials and can be strapped around your waist or worn cross-shoulder when you are hiking or travelling. Choose RibbonXL in one of the bold neon colours for the ultimate summer vibes!

4. Macramé necklace

Are you looking for some affordable boho-Ibiza vibes in your summer wardrobe? Then use some leftover macramé yarn to tie this necklace with soft fringes. We made this necklace with leftover Spesso Chunky Cotton yarn. The macramé necklace is very easy to knot and super cool to combine with a crocheted or knitted bag, made with the same or similar yarn!
