When you think of summer the first thing that comes to mind sure isn’t blankets! Can you imagine crocheting large blankets in the middle of summer? With a little preparation and some wise pattern choices you don’t have to give up your favorite hobby this summer. In this post I rounded up 7 blanket crochet patterns that are worked in small pieces, such as squares or strips, so they won’t heat up your lap while crocheting.

1. Kaleido Blanket

2. Mile A Minute Shell Blanket

3. Popup Flower Blanket

4. Circles and Squares Blanket

5. Ultimate Granny Square Blanket

6. Lovable Heart Blanket

7. Hugs and Kisses Baby Blanket

    I am working on 3 afghans and a baby blanket and about to start another baby blanket. I have 2 friends having babies. One is due in August, the other in September. One of the afghans I’m working on is in squares; it was featured in one of the crochet magazines for the very reasons you’re talking about: portable and not too hot. One of the afghans I’m working on is a king sized bedspread, but it is so wide I can set most of it to the side, so it hasn’t proven too hard to work on. I love working on blankets and I really hate summer, the sun and the heat, so I am always hiding inside anyway. Can’t wait for the fall!!! PS I have some of the patterns pictured here, I might have to do them next!

      I understand about crocheting in doors, I hate summer, I have to many allergies to go at that time of year, I also have 3 afghans & a table cloth I am working on. I do love the blankets they have here.
      Happy Indoor Summer to you
