Hi Dearies! I’m back! I’ve had a lot on my plate and have been crocheting constantly lately! So, since we are finally in the summer season, I figure this would be the perfect time to find some patterns that are perfect for the beach or for summer in general!
Since I LOVE going to the beach, I figured this would be the best time to look for some patterns that would be perfect for going! Some of the patterns that I’ve found are not just for us adults, but for kids as well!
Note: These patterns are not mine and all credit goes out to their original creators. I have left links for each of the patterns.
1. Beach Cover-up Shorts
That’s right! Crocheted shorts do exist! I was shocked when I was a beginner and saw this! These aren’t for your normal closet, but if you are headed to the beach, these are perfect, especially if you don’t have a sundress or want to wear jeans to cover your bathing suit bottoms. Also, the yarn is very breathable, which is a plus!

2. Stuffed Beach Ball
Don’t have your own beach ball to play with? Or have a beach theme going on in your house, then this is a very fun project to make! This stuffie is also perfect for the little ones and the best part is, you don’t have to worry about blowing it up or any holes that those plastic ones usually get. Not to mention, you can mix around the colors and make something similar to this one or get creative and make it into a rainbow theme!

3. Beach Hat
Can’t go wrong with a beach hat, that’s for sure! The good thing about this is that it’s very simple to make, not to mention very breathable, although you might have to work with a different type of yarn, it’s worth the try! I also love the ribbon that they placed around it for the finishing touch!

4. Sun-Kissed Crop Top
These are cover-ups that don’t necessarily have to be for your bikini, but you can use for tank tops or dresses, like in the picture. I also want to say that this person, who created the pattern, I actually follow her and her blog, she has a lot of free patterns, so check it out when you can!

5. Sea Shells By The Shore Market Bag
I love how this bag looks! Especially how they look like little shells that were embedded into the bag itself. Not to mention the colors they chose were amazing and what really caught my eyes. Now, market bags aren’t just for the market, but these bags are perfect for the beach just because there are lots of open spaces for sand to fall out!

6. Beach Ball Hat
This pattern is for the kiddos, but so cute and for both boys and girls! This pattern is also a fun one to switch out the colors with, especially if you are making this for someone who is having a baby around the summertime! I love how creative this pattern!

7. Beach Day Louge Towel
I’ll be looking into making one of these for myself for sure! Now, this isn’t a towel you dry yourself with, you could, but this makes for a wonderful towel-blanket to use to tan or sit in the sand, without the sand sticking to your legs. Not to mention, I love the colors they chose! Simply amazing!

8. Sand Dollar Beach Bag
Are you one of those that just loves to go on the hunt to find sand dollars? Then this bag is perfect for that, not to mention, it small enough to carry around and soft enough to prevent the sand dollars or shells from breaking! Perfect to make for the kiddos, when they go out to search for them! Or it could be used for picking up rocks, like my 2 1/2 year old does!

9. Breezy Swim Cover
Cover-ups aren’t something I’ve worn or felt comfortable enough to wear in public, but the design for this cover-up is simply beautiful! I think I might actually add this to my list of stuff to make for myself! I also love the soft pink shade that they used, very pretty!

10. Sandy Shore Cover Up
I had to look for another cover-up because you never know what people’s tastes might me, but this one is super cute and very simple to make. Not to mention, there is a hood attached to it, which is perfect for keeping your hair being blown everywhere on a windy beach day! This type of style isn’t something I would wear, but the color really caught my eye for sure!
