There is nothing that beats a good cotton crochet summer hat that will make you enjoy a day out in the sunshine without worrying about the sun’s rays that will be harmful to your face.
The Beach vibe sun hat crochet pattern reminds me of an island holiday with crystal clear water and the white sand beach.
So I pick up this natural beige color cotton yarn which is going to match my favorite white summer beach dress That I really love.
Simple crochet sun hat pattern.
This cotton summer sun hat has a classic bucket style that is so trendy right now in the crochet community.
The brim will give the coverage for your face just enough from the sun and, at the same time, will let the air come through so you feel the cool breeze when wearing the hat.
Crocheting your own sun hat is so easy and will be a great summer crochet project to start with for beginners.
They need only a little bit of yarn and basic crochet stitches to complete this hat, something like single crochet and double crochet stitch.
Best yarn for crochet summer hats.
This simple yet classic crochet sun hat pattern uses basic crochet stitches for the hat body and for the floppy brim.
I used cotton yarn for this sun hat pattern; cotton yarn is more breathable and feels like a second skin so it makes you feel comfy to wear and won’t be too heated up on a hot sunny day.
I hold the yarn double strand while crocheting all the way through until I finish the sun hat. If you guys don’t like to hold double.
I also have an option for you to use 5 bulky weight yarn for it. If you use 5 bulky weight yarn, you don’t need to hold double.
