In the dog days of summer, I love cranking up the A/C, finding a funny movie on TV (Starsky & Hutch, anyone?!), and tucking into a great crochet project. Sometimes it’s tough to know what to make next, so I compiled over 50 of my current favorite crochet projects for you to pick from. Scroll through to discover new designers and fall in love with your next work in progress.
