Crochet Blanket Patterns How to Make 14 Lightweight Summer Afghans

Crochet afghans keep you warm and cozy in the chilliest of temperatures, but did you know that you can also use crochet blankets and throws during the summer? Lightweight and lacy crochet blanket patterns are very popular in the summer since they still manage to keep you warm in the face of over-powerful air conditioners and any suddenly breezy days.

Because they're made of lightweight yarns and oftentimes feature intricate lace stitches throughout, they don't feel suffocating and heavy in the summer heat. Learn how to crochet your very own lace afghan, perfect for the warmer temperatures, with the following collection of 14 Lightweight Summer Afghans.

These crochet blanket patterns feature all types of projects, from those using very thin lace to form delicate and intricate lace pieces, to thicker weighted yarn using lacier crochet stitches to just all-around summertime appropriate throws. These lace crochet afghan patterns are sure to have you hooking all spring and summer long!

Light Weight Crochet Afghan Patterns

Illuminations Blanket

These crochet blankets are made with light-weight, or sport-weight, yarn to make the most lacy of designs stand out.

These designs take a bit longer to work up since the yarn is much thinner than the typical medium-weight you'd use for an afghan, but the end result is a springtime stunner. 

Lace Crochet Afghan Patterns
