Swing into Summer: Light and Lacy Patterns


Do you dread spring cleaning as much as I do?  Literally the only way I can get myself to dive into the pile of clutter that’s taken over my closet is to remind myself that once it’s over I get to fill it with fun new clothes and accessories.

As an early reward to you (I just know you’ll get that closet tackled this weekend!), I decided to share some of my favorite light and lacy patterns for summer!  From feminine scarves to pretty shawls and even some fun and girly accessories, I love everything about summer fashion. Keep reading if you’re on the hunt for some great crochet, knitting and sewing patterns perfect for warm weather. I’ve found some good ones :)

Light and Airy Summer Scarves:

This Lightweight Infinity Scarf is a great option if you want to jazz up an outfit without piling on the layers. The infinity design is practical and fun at the same time and it’ll definitely keep your neck warm on a breezy summer night!


The last thing you want in the blazing summer heat is a bunch of extra fabric on you. That’s why this short Light and Lacy Scarf is a good accessory option. Its airy design allows your neck to breathe while still allowing you to show off a cool crochet design!



Lacy Shawls and Cardigans:

Want to show off your feminine side this summer without being too revealing? Try this elegant cropped lace cardigan, which should be a staple in every woman’s closet!  With its scalloped eyelet accents, ribbed edging and pretty lace detailing, this short and lightweight sweater is just the thing to wear for date night or a picnic in the park!



Wrap yourself in just enough warmth for a cool summer night with this beautiful crochet shawl!  The simple yet chic design will make you feel fabulous and fashionable when you wear this shawl out at night this summer!



Pretty and Feminine Accessories:

When you’re putting together the perfect light and lacy look this summer, don’t forget about your accessories. Earrings like these Simple Lace Hoops can make an ordinary outfit shine!  It’s so easy to add a dose of feminine flair to your ensemble when you have lovely lace-accented accessories like these in your jewelry box!


Don’t tote around a bulky bag this summer; carry this beautiful and dainty Silk Lace Bag instead!  Toss in a pair of fun sunglasses, some pretty pink lip gloss and a container of sun block and you’ll be ready to stroll the sidewalks in style this summer!  Embellish your bag with tiny beads for an extra feminine touch that completes the whole light and lacy look.


I never get tired of looking at pretty, lightweight summer patterns. They make me think of days at the beach, delicious iced coffees and dining al fresco!  You too?  Then be sure you check out the following summer collections for even more easy, breezy outfit ideas!

    These are terrific! I feel like most craft magazines provide knitting or crochet patterns for winter because people associate both knitting and crocheting with sweaters and heavy scarves. These patterns are light and delicate and perfect for any clothing item or accessory to accompany summer outfits. I also enjoy the idea of revamping my closet, which is currently a mass of unidentifiable material and shoes, for summertime.
