Summer Lovin Crochet Challenge
Life is better in flop flops and definitely all three of these Summer Loving Crochet Challenge selections would match perfectly.
I’ve been getting into crocheting more women’s apparel lately. Recently, I have filmed all three of these choices for full free video tutorial formats.
Crochet Tunic (light blue) It has an easy to follow repeat pattern with no shaping required. Two identical panels, sewn together at the shoulders. Easy stuff.
Beachy Keen Cover Up (royal blue) Is super quick to make and is a project that extends past the hip line. it is designed to give the person some peek a boo stitches to allow air and sun to flow on through but without giving up personal privacy to do so. It’s extremely quick to make. There’s a bit of shaping of just three small rows in the shoulders to give it a refined look.
Scalloped Top (yellow) Is a interesting and fancy stitch repeat pattern that comes across as complicated but once you get to understand the pattern, you will realize you will hook yourself all the way to greatness. It has sleeves and the shaping of the neck comes naturally as the stitches do the scalloped look on their own.
Prizes x 3
We have three prizes of 30 Caron Simply Soft Yarn Balls by Yarnspirations for this summer challenge. Each completed top, cover up or tunic you do is considered 1 entry. So you can do more than one or do multiples of the same pattern, that’s up to you.
Pictures received will be organized by the pattern and each design will have one lucky draw.
To the winners, we will provide free shipping if you are awarded the prize.

- There is no sign up required to participate. Complete the project and email your photo when you are done. This challenge is open to all Crochet Crowd Community Members. If you are a member of The Crochet Crowd, you may participate.
- You may use any yarn you wish. You may substitute your yarn for any brand or colors that you desire. You may create any color scheme. Use as many or as little colours as you prefer.
- You may do as many projects as you wish. If multiple entries are identical, a picture showing the projects together to prove their are multiple must be included with your submissions.
- We require your photo to show the entire project so we know the entire project is done. The project must be showing all of the project for us to count rows in the picture to ensure the projects are complete. Ensure your project is completely finished with yarn tails and etc not showing. It’s like giving it out as a gift, we want to the see the photo showing as if you were gifting us the finished product. This way we know you are completely done.
- Two of these three patterns have been around for a few years. The crocheter must have completed this pattern as is. The work of making these projects are fair and equal to all, even if the crocheter has already made one or two of them before this challenge was created.
If you are changing your hook size, we are still looking for the pattern to be the same. For the projects, it just will mean you will have to do more stitches to get to the finished sizes if you are substituting for a smaller hook.
- The projects must be the same stitching as indicated in the pattern. Do not disqualify yourself by changing the pattern stitching. Submission of a project equivalent to the project but isn’t the same will not be accepted.
- Crocheters Choice: After your pattern instructions are complete, you may add embellishments, borders and etc to the pattern to push your creativity further.
- All photos must be submitted during the challenge time frame only. Entries after this due date will be accepted for our gallery but there are no prize giveaways after the deadline.
- Your Choice: Post your finished project on The Crochet Crowd Facebook Page to show everyone your finished work so we can drool over your creativity.
- When you email your finished photo to us, we respect your privacy and will only post your first and last name on the picture in our gallery with the photo so we can identify the winner at the end.
- Featuring on Facebook is dependent on you. We do not upload your emailed photos to Facebook. You have to do that yourself if you want to Show N Tell your creativity.
- One random choice for each will be made at the end to select one winner. It’s a lottery system and everyone has a fair chance to win.
