Light Summer Sunhat
I have a bunch of this sale baby yarn and my youngest asked for a light summer sunhat, I doubt she’ll wear it. She’s too cool now to be wearing what momma makes but I still made one anyways, because you never know, she might just give in and wear it..
The yarn I used, Ice Yarns – Sale Baby is a limited edition summer yarn available in my yarn shop, make sure to get it while you can. The yarn is listed as a 50G/200m ball but doesn’t list a weight. Working with it almost feels like it’s a #1 fingering yarn. I used a larger hook with it because my wrist cracks when I work with finer yarns and smaller hooks.
This pattern is just a basic SC beanie, the pattern shows how to hook up the hat with basic single crochet stitches and the math to work to any size you would like. As always my patterns are free on my blog, if you are using free patterns please make sure to download when you want to use a pattern so you get the most up to date copy, or you can buy my patterns on ravelry and be notified of updates. If you find an error please let me know.
I made a hat to fit my youngest, she’s 5, with a 20″ around her head, I worked 12 increases up to a 5.75″ diameter piece, then worked until my work measured 6.5″ from the crown, then added the brim. When I made the first hat I started with 5 stitches so I ended up with a star shaped brim, then I made another hat starting with 6 stitches so I would end up with a sunhat brim. I staggared my sunhat brim increases so I didn’t end up with peaks in my brim.
My newborn hat I worked 8 increases up to a 4.0″ diameter piece, then I worked until it was 4.0″ inches with a 1 inch brim.
The great thing about this hat is that it can be made for boys or girls!
