Crochet Belt & Pot Holder Patterns for Gathered by Mollie Makes

Texans claim to have the ability to survive weeks of 100 degree heat without complaint. In reality, we complain, gripe, and shake our fists at the sun on a daily basis! Let me prove my own point and state an obvious fact right here and now…it is so hot outside! Nevertheless, even the summer heat can’t keep me from my yarn stash! Cotton is my solution and savior this time of year.
I recently shared a few patterns in Gathered by Mollie Makes that are perfect projects for this heat! The first is a simple crochet belt pattern published in Issue 42. It matches perfectly with my current favorite skirt from Target! I was so excited to see my belt on the cover too! 

Also, you can find this crochet pot holder in Issue 40! I love the colorful stripes and the unique, wavy stitch pattern.

I hope you give these projects a try! What are you working on to beat the heat? Do you like to use cotton in the summer too? Or if it is fall/winter in your part of the world, what cozy knits are you creating at the moment? I would love to see!

    Us Australian’s whinge all the way through our 40 degree summer. In between going to the beach and hiding in the air con and drinking too much beer.

    I tend to work on small projects, like socks. If I have any thing at all resting on my lap it’s just too hot.

    I love cotton in the summer. You should really give linen a try. Its different but so light. Try the linen at Quince & Co. I love it!

  3. Marissa O says:

    I love knitting and crafting, but in the summer I feel like I don’t have time! It sucks, but it makes the winter months all that better. Nothing like cuddling and knitting. I can’t wait for FALL!

  4. Although, it’s quite hot here in Texas, somehow I find myself currently, crocheting a blanket in the middle of heat advisory warning! Truly, I adore crocheting more so in the fall/winter times, though I have been pushing myself to make it a year round project utilizing different types of yarn for the seasons.
    Oh and I have crocheted up a handful of crochet bow belts myself too!

  5. Tilly says:

    Congrats – you must have been so happy to see it on the cover! x

  6. Oh! I just started a new blanket for our bed which {fingers crossed} I’ll have finished in time for the winter. I mean I literally just started one row last night. I was going to do it using Tunisian crochet, but I actually found it a bit stressful! Have you ever tried Tunisian crochet? I ended up giving up and went back to old school double crochet …

    Beautiful features in Gathered by Molly Makes, congrats! :)

  7. Congratulations!! That is so awesome!

    Nice creations! I especially like the belt paired with the skirt and yellow top. In Summer I prefer to crochet with cotton yarn too. It’s currently the last month of Winter in Australia so I’m working with nice, warm, wooly yarn to make a granny square blanket.

    They can play some parts (usually the main, beginning part to the song) but not much more than that.

    Topics like compression and limiting may be foreign to
    you, but after reading Mike Senior’s ‘Mixing Secrets for The Small Studio’ you will damn near
    be a professional audio engineer.

  26. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum
    it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m
    still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers?

    I’d really appreciate it.
