2022 Modern Spring Crochet Fashion

Spring isn’t quite here but it’s time to get started on these spring and summer projects if you haven’t already. I love Spring. It’s a symbolism of new growth and beginnings.

The list of designs is no particular order. They are just a few of my top favorites from some awesome innovative designers.

First up is the Split Ruffled Sleeve Crop Top designed by Kathy at What About Yarn. This top is super cute and definitely on my to do list. I love the way ruffles make a top even more feminine.

Here is the Matriarch Jacket. This balloon sleeve jacket was designed by the talented Swedish designer Moa P Blomqvist of Honse Designs. The pattern is in English using US terminology.

The Destiny Pocket Shawl

The Destiny Pocket Shawl was inspired by an amazing trip I recently took to Destin, FL.  It was a little chilly in the evenings and this shawl would have definitely come in handy.  I chose a medium weight yarn to ensure its cozy and warm but not too heavy.  This will be perfect addition to your wardrobe.

The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern

Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructions needed to complete the pattern, but I also realize that we do not like all of the ads and like to print a clean version so we can crochet in the car or in the bed without using a phone or internet.  I also offer an Ad-Free version of the pattern that can be purchased here at spiritscrochet.com, Ravelry or Etsy.

Center and pin the pockets ½ inch from the edge.  Using needle and yarn stitch the pocket to the shawl.  Do not go all the way through the back of the shawl, insert the needle through a stitch or two of the shawl to keep the back looking uniform.

Fringes

The fringes are optional.  Measure 7 inches in length (14inches total, folded in half).  Evenly place two fringes along the two ends of the shawl.  I placed them in the side of each single crochet.

Pineapple-skirt-pattern 🍍

Pineapple lace skirt

I wrote this pattern a few months ago, my very first. The process was much harder than I thought.  I wanted to make sure I learned from other patterns I had bought and felt should have more details.  I also wanted to take the good from other great pattern writers.  Ensuring I included the correct guidelines, guages and details was imperative. My pattern had to be easy to read and follow. So i did my research.

After remaking the skirt several times, Pineapple-skirt-pattern , it was finally ready for testers.  I was excited when the testers found very few changes.  It was ready to be published.  I decided to list it on my Etsy page as well as Ravelry.  The sales in no means made me rich but I was pleased, not only with the sales but the good reviews.  I’m on my way to becoming a designer!!

I’m now working on my next pattern which will be published soon.  I was commissioned to make some little girl skirts and socks and decided to design my own.
