I have compiled a collection of 10 summer crochet dresses that will be perfect to wear at the beach or for a day at the park having a picnic.
Summer is such a great time of the year. It is by far one of my most favorite seasons. I absolutely love waking up on a sunny summer day. Early enough so that the low sun creeps in through the curtains and wakes me up.
I often drink my first-morning cup of coffee sat outside enjoying the morning rays of sunshine. Planning the perfect day is so much easier in summer. All you need is a beach blanket and good company to spend a lovely day at the beach.
Everything seems more cheerful and people are happy and smiling.

4. Adelaide Girls’ Dress
This super fun and cute kids summer dress is made out of two rectangles sewn together. The rectangles use two different stitch patterns. It uses two skeins of yarn and you have yourself this adorable dress available in sizes for 2 year-olds to 10 year-olds.
However, you can adjust the size of the rectangles and make the dress bigger or smaller if you wish. The use of 2 different types of stitches makes the rectangles wider at the bottom. This contributes to the dress having a little flared-out bottom which makes it even cuter.
The Adelaide Dress pattern is quick and easy and it will take you less time to crochet than a scarf. Take a look at the pattern on this website.
5. Dandelion Crochet Tunic
This simple tunic pattern was designed with speed and ease in mind. The ribbing was purposefully simplified by using only front post stitches.
