How do you style a crochet cover up?

Crochet beach coverup patterns come in many different forms. Some may be in the form of summer cardigans, lacy shrugs, lightweight mesh pullovers, skirt or sarongs, the list goes on and on.

The best thing about summer season coverups is that you can use them in other ways than a swimsuit cover.

Here are some ways to style a crochet coverup with you summer wardrobe:

  1. Pair it with a simple outfit like skinny jeans and a tank top for a super cute look
  2. Wear it with a cute summer dress like a tee shirt dress or Sundays best
  3. Use skirts and sarongs like shrugs to protect your shoulders from the summer heat

What kind of yarn is used for crochet beach cover up patterns?

The summer season calls for light weight yarn that is breathable and absorbent.

Different can definitely be used, however cotton yarn is popularly used for summer crochet. Cotton yarn is great for absorption which comes in handy during for warm weather.

Another perk about cotton yarn is how you can really see the stitch details in a beautiful crochet pattern and usually comes in thinner weight yarns like CYC 2 and 3.
