The Everyday Summer Hat

This year’s hot summer is the inspiration for this pattern.  I was also inspired by the raffia hats that are popular in stores. The discovery of plastic hat brim wires got me hooked into making sun hats.

Elisa DeSena

About the Pattern

The Everyday Summer Hat is a beautiful addition to your daily outfit whether you’re going for a walk to the beach or park or lounging by the pool or in your backyard. This first project in this list of worsted weight crochet patterns is great for adventurous or advanced beginners.  The pattern is worked in the round from the top down. It uses worsted weight cotton yarn, a great fabric to use for summer. The added plastic brim wire is what makes the difference. The wire creates that floppy brim and adds the best finishing touch to the hat!

Bee Lovey

My inspiration for this pattern was the thought that loveys are just so cute and amazing gifts for children. I also think bumble bees are adorable and trending right now which led me to design a bee lovey pattern.

Carmel-by-the-Sea Crossbody Bag

I was also inspired by the amazing art I saw in Carmel’s world-famous galleries to push myself in terms of crochet design.

Shelle Agrawal

About the Pattern


One of my favorite things to do here in California is to go on road trips and explore the beautiful small towns, gorgeous scenery, and sun-filled beaches with my boyfriend. A couple years ago, we went on a trip to Carmel-by-the-Sea on the Monterey peninsula, and I instantly fell in love with the historic, small-town feel, the picturesque, fairy-tale cottages and wineries, as well as the breathtaking beaches and scenery. It’s one of our favorite memories to this day, and I can’t wait to visit it again!

I tried to channel those amazing experiences into this design to try to recreate some of that charm. I was also inspired by the amazing art I saw in Carmel’s world-famous galleries to push myself in terms of crochet design. The first area I challenged myself in was in terms of the color scheme. There is a lot of colorwork such as the neutral beige of the sands, the bright yellow sunshine, the green cliffs, and the blue ocean, as well as a wave pattern on the flap. I also challenged myself in terms of the texture with the braided strap, the tassel, and the interweave work which all give it a slightly bohemian vibe.

The Carmel-by-the-Sea crossbody purse was inspired by a town of the same name here in California, known for being a picturesque, seaside town with beautiful art, wineries, culture, and sunshine! I loved being there, and it was so much fun to design this purse and reminisce. I hope you enjoy the beach-y texture and seaside-cliff color tones as much as I did! 


Next in this list of worsted weight crochet patterns, this purse works up relatively quickly to make a perfect accessory or present. It is constructed in the round and utilizes different techniques and stitches to incorporate lots of color and textural interest. Since it includes colorwork, tapestry crochet, interweave, and working in the round, it may work best for an intermediate to advanced level crocheter. However, there are modifications included for advanced beginners as well! It is customizable at every stage, so you can make it just the way you want. You can use any worsted weight yarn you like, as long as it’s reasonably strong. For an accessible option, you can use Yarnspirations Caron One Pound for the body and Red Heart yarns for the details.

Forget Me Knot Beanie

I was having the hardest time coming up with a name for the stitch until I was reading a book one night, and the Forget Me Not flower was mentioned.  That was the moment when the light bulb went on, and the Forget Me Knot stitch was born.

Boho Cactus Wall Hanging

I have two Appaloosa horses who are the inspiration behind all of my designs. Bred by the Nez Perce tribe, their Native American heritage as well as the bright colors that are traditional to the Native Americans is what inspires my creations. This design is certainly no exception and is also one of my favorites.

This particular design features a big, bold cactus with a brightly colored background and fringe at the bottom.

Eco Mug Rug

I have two other patterns with the same stitch combination. These stitches create texture and straight lines within the pattern. 

Krystal Amador

About the Pattern

The Eco Mug Rug is a quick project using scraps of cotton yarn. Easily customizable with color combinations of your choice, this is sure to be a hit. You can opt to use one color for the mug rug and a contrasting color for the fringe or use all the same color.  Either method is sure to compliment your decor.  The mug rug is pictured with fringe, but tassels would be a fun addition as well.

Two Continents Map Set: Africa Blanket, South America Pillow

This set was inspired by the world atlas! I love maps, because nature is a great designer. I also love how you can play with the finished piece by finding places or marking rivers with a string.

Maria Jeczmyk

About the Pattern

Last in this roundup of worsted weight crochet patterns, this set actually includes two patterns, a blanket and a small pillow. They are made using different techniques, although both are beginner friendly! I used Lion Brand Heartland for both. 

The vintage Africa blanket pattern uses c2c technique and includes a graph for the color changes. Thanks to Africa’s simple shoreline there are very few color changes. C2C is a simple technique that is worth learning, because it opens a whole new world of possibilities in crochet design. After making the main blanket, you can add the border using written instructions and progress photos included in the pattern. Then wrap yourself or your child in this super soft and unique blanket.

The South America pillow pattern is even simpler because the pattern is so much smaller and uses only single crochet stitches. It also contains fewer color changes. The pattern consists of two squares. One square shows the South America map, and the other is plain. The pattern includes a graph for completing the front panel. After finishing them, you just join them by single crocheting along the edges. 

Add a spirit of adventure to your home with these crochet maps!
