First up for this week, we have the Free As A Breeze Tee from Carroway Crochet, who organized this fun blog hop! This tee is a perfect first sweater project because of it’s simple design!
Next is the Easy Sunglass Cases from Loops and Love Crochet. These colorful cases are so bright and cheerful, and an easy, quick gift for anyone you love!
Dahlia Wrap is designed by DeniMade. This lacy wrap looks perfect for draping around your shoulders on a chilly spring evening!
Little Dragonfly Scarf is brought to us by MadameStitch. This simple granny stitch scarf is a perfect fit for a colorful yarn! Keep the scarf handy for chilly air conditioned rooms or evenings out!
Blue Star Crochet is the designer of the Lipa Backpack. This tapestry crochet drawstring bag is the perfect way to carry your things while you are enjoying the beautiful weather outdoors!
The Sunday Clutch is from The Loophole Fox. This dainty purse will be a light accessory to carry out on a date, to the prom, or on any special occasion! I think I might do as the name suggests and carry it to church on Sunday!
Next up is my own design, Marietta Kerchief! Make this lacy head scarf for wearing on road trips, to festivals, or to picnics.
The Apache Tears Mug Rugs are from My Crochet Space. I’ve actually never tried this stitch pattern before, but I love how it looks! This cute little pattern could be perfect any any number of color combos, but I’m envisioning red, white, and blue for Independence Day!
The Granny Triangle Bandana is from designer My Fingers Fly. I love hair kerchiefs, as you may have noticed from my own design above. With this second head scarf, you have choices! I might make some of each to take with me camping or to fiber shows this summer!
Tumblebee Bumble Bee is from Off the Hook For You. I know that bumble bee amigurumi are all the rage right now, but I’m out of the loop enough to not know why, lol! But, I feel sure that someone you love will love this little cutie!
Pine Tree Crochet designed this Star Cat Toy that your furry friends will love! I might make one for my own cat, Stella! Have you ever spotted her in one of my YouTube videos? I used to do most of my videos outside and she routinely comes up to me meowing while I’m outside.
Lastly for week 1 is the Iris Headband from Sunflower Cottage Crochet. This bright headband will be a quick-finish project to enjoy this spring!
Week of May 8-14

First is the Crochet Bookmark From Pine Tree Crochet. This could make an excellent teacher appreciation or end-of-school-year gift!
This spring crochet pattern is Irelyn Wrap from Through the Loop Yarn Craft. With that very open stitch pattern, it makes an excellent warm weather layering piece!
Warmest Feet Ever Slipper Socks may not work for everyone in the spring, but I always seem to have freezing cold feet no matter the temperature outside! Anyone else? I would love having these to wear to bed at night!
Next up is Puppy Amigurumi from Loops & Love Crochet! This cute little toy would make a great gift for your favorite little person!
Juniper Wall Hanging is a beautiful boho style granny stitch wall-hanging from DeniMade! I could see hanging this beauty in my entryway! Where will you put yours?
Tablet Envelope from MadameStitch makes a great spring project. Crocheting useful and decorative items like bags, cases, and wall-hangings are great ways to keep the crojo going all summer long!
Blue Star Crochet is the designer of the Selene Cardigan. This is a lovely, classic openwork cardigan that would be so pretty over a sundress, or for wearing to a wedding this spring or summer!
Next, I’m happy to share with you that my Pensacola Poncho is one of this week’s free spring crochet patterns to download! This linen poncho is made in beautiful Bruges lace. Video tutorial included!
Primavera Shawl is from My Crochet Space. Why not start on a fall crochet project now? That way you can take your time and still have it ready when the weather gets chilly again!
Make your beauty routine more environmentally friendly with the Radiance Face Scrubbies from The Loophole Fox. It will make every day feel like spa day when you use these beautiful little crocheted scrubbies to clean your face!
Taco Scrubby is a fun kitchen project from My Fingers Fly. I have a particular friend that really loves tacos that I think of when I see these. Maybe I need to make them as a gift for her!
Off The Hook For You is the designer of Oval Stair Baskets. Living in a home with stairs myself, I can say that these are a very good idea! I frequently pick things up in the living room that my kiddos need to take upstairs, and now their things can go in their baskets!
The Scrappy Block Scarf from Sunflower Cottage Crochet could be a great way to use up scraps! That counts as spring cleaning, right?!
Last we have the Maggie Shawl from Pam’s Cozy Corner. I could keep a lightweight shawl like this one handy at my desk for those days that the AC and I aren’t on the same page.

The Jeans Triangle Scarf from MadameStitch makes a great casual accessory when it’s just a bit chilly. I might wear it with jeans and a t-shirt when a spring evening is a little colder than the day.

The Caia Mug Rug from Through the Loop Yarn Craft could make a small boho accent peace in your space. Use them to keep your tables dry when it’s warm outside.
This pone or glasses case is from Sunflower Cottage Crochet. What a great way to protect your glasses lenses or phone screen in the console of your car or the depths of your purse!
The Leaf Sprout Cable Tie is from Once Upon A Cheerio. It could also be used as a bookmark. What an ingenious idea!
