Friends, it’s hot. Really hot. Summer is here and April, being the hottest month in Thailand, has been sweltering. So, what’s a crocheting girl to do? Make a wide brim crochet sun hat, of course!
I love, love, love mine and thought you all might enjoy the pattern too.
As always, the pattern was created with beginners in mind, so don’t worry if you don’t have a lot of crochet experience. You’ll be able to whip this up in no time!
Since I actually wanted the brim of the hat to have some shape, I used a worsted weight or acrylic yarn in the sun hat crochet pattern.
I also recommend holding double the yarn while crocheting. That means you’ll need two skeins and be holding the yarn from each skein at the same time.
This added thickness allows the brim to be wide without being too floppy. After all, I wanted the hat to shield the sun, not cover my eyes!
You can make the hat in any color, but if you plan on going out in the sun a lot, choose a lighter color so that it absorbs less heat.
I added a super easy crochet pinwheel flower to the hat to dress it up, but you could add an applique heart or even an easy shell pattern band if you wanted to.
If you’re thinking that the sun hat pattern might be too challenging, don’t worry. I don’t like complicated patterns either, so all of my crochet patterns are easy to do. This one makes a great addition to your summer wardrobe! I hope you enjoy the new pattern!
