Retro Heat Wave – Hot Lazy Summer Day Inspired Yarn Color Palette Collection

Hot long lazy days and longer steamy nights! Memories of the past motivated me to create this Retro Heat Wave yarn color palette collection. Growing up in the 90s, we used to spend all day in the pool then dry off by laying out in the sun on some hot concrete. Once the temperatures cool down a little, time for us to start running around and playing tag or walking down to the ballpark to catch a little league game. My summers were some of the best times of my life.

My summer nights were also filled with excitement as we explored church bazaars, neighborhood block parties and every weekend was spent at the skating rink. Or a little sneaking out my bedroom window to meet friends at the park down the street.  I loved to lay out on playground equipment and look up at the stars.

I am so in love with this summer collection. Retro Heat Wave features three new palettes inspired by all those long lazy days and three exciting palettes to represent those steamy nights! May you find enjoyment and inspiration for all your summer crochet projects and Thank you for visiting Vivid Crochet. Please check out my printables store here!
