I’m sure many of you are enjoying the summer sun and the opportunities to take your homemade goods with you outdoors.  Picnics and BBQs are summer traditions that I personally love to take advantage of!

So if you’re heading out for a picnic or bbq, or simply just having a fun get together in your backyard – I’ve put together a round up of some of my favorite patterns that are great for outdoor usage.

Knit Striped Dishcloth

Knit Bright Stripes Dishcloth

Bright and bold colors are all the rave right now, and they’re great colors to incorporate for your BBQ accessories. Knit in the retro-inspired color palette of Kitchen Cotton are our Bright Stripes Dishcloths. Kitchen Cotton comes in many fun colors that allows for great mix and matching, you’ll think of summer whenever you look at these eye catching potholders!

Crochet Bear and Beehive Potholder

I think this potholder set crocheted in Cotton-Ease is super adorable. Bears and bees are much less threatening in yarn form.  It’s a cute, yet durable accessory for grilling, and people just might think that you bought it at the store!
