Spring Into Summer Blog Hop · 33 Free Crochet Patterns

Are you a crochet-lover wondering what to make for the warmer seasons? 

I have the perfect treat for you!  It's the "Spring into Summer" Blog Hop!  Sweet Softies has teamed up with other designers from around the world to put together this event, featuring an amazing collection of summery crochet projects.

This fun event will allow you access to the free PDF patterns for each design in the collection.  It runs from May 1st to June 2nd (8am EST to 7:59am EST the next day), 24 hours a day. 

From garments and accessories to home decor patterns, there is something for everyone in this blog hop; you will absolutely be enjoying the spring and summer months in style.  

One designer is featured each day with a FREE PDF pattern.  You'll want to scroll down to find out how to get the patterns for free!  

(As with my previous blog hops, you'll be going to the host's blog to find the discount code, then "hopping" to the designer's blog to find their pattern download link on Ravelry.) 

Want the Entire Bundle NOW?

If you... 
  • are too lazy to do the blog hop 
  • want all 33 patterns instantly 
  • want to support small, independent designers like me 
  • want "in" on a HUGE discount (save $187 and get all 33 patterns!)

...then you're in luck!

The "Spring Into Summer" Bundle is available for a limited time and is heavily discounted from the original retail value. You can get all 33 crochet patterns for only $15.99!  

How the Blog Hop Works:

  1. Find today's featured pattern and coupon on our host's page (will be live starting May 1st at 8am EST)! There will be a new pattern and coupon each day, until June 2nd.
  2. Follow the link to go to the featured designer's website.
  3. Find the download button inside the designer's blog hop post.
  4. Apply the coupon on the site.
  5. Enjoy the free pattern, and come back tomorrow for more!


Part of this event also includes a GIVEAWAY!  There are 5 prizes up for grabs – one grand prize and 4 runner up prizes. 
  • Grand Prize: Premium Winding Station Tool Kit* + Spring into Summer Pattern Bundle 
  • 4 Runner-Up Prizes: Spring into Summer Pattern Bundle

And if you win but have already purchased the bundle, don’t worry, you will get a full refund. (So, you don’t need to hold off on buying the bundle if you would like to get started straight away!) 

Here's My Freebie:

Here's the design I'm sharing: the Botanical Japanese Knot Bag!  This lovely block-colored bag features the knit stitch and has a leaf charm.  It is made with KnitPicks Billow Yarn, which makes for a sturdy bag! 

My pattern's feature date is May 15th.

Get my Free PDF Pattern:

Again, since my Botanical Japanese Knot Bag is being featured on May 15, 2023, the download for this free PDF pattern will be available on that day on the host's blog!  If you miss it, you can also view the free version on my blog at any time! 

On my featured date, June 5th, remember to grab the discount code on the Round Up Post:

If you enjoyed my pattern, don't miss out on loads of free patterns from Sweet Softies, too!  Remember to sign up for the Sweet Softies' mailing list to get a freebie delivered to your inbox every Tuesday.

I hope that you find some inspiring patterns to make!

Happy crocheting!
