More Hat Patterns Available
First up is the quick and simple Lacy Shells Hat. Above is another version I made for moi- from Cascade Pima Silk. I have received lots of compliments on this one and it’s come in handy to keep my head warm this week, since the temperatures dipped into the 40s again. (You know how it is– you just can’t go back to that winter gear. Can’t. Go. Back.) I made at least 6 or 7 of these- they are fun and quick and therefore addictive. I was using my stash so many are in wool, and I’ll be selling them (in fact, the very hats in the pattern photos) later, when people start thinking about wool hats again. But let’s not go there right now. Think of lacy summer toppers that’ll work up in a night from your favorite cotton or cotton blend.
And here’s my second pattern, the quintessential hat for summer-introducing the Summer Sun (raffia) Hat! I always see crocheted raffia sun hats but I wanted to make one my way. I had to order the raffia online at papermart.com (here’s the link, please note that I used the “Raffia Ribbon”), but you may be able to find it locally. You can also use worsted weight cotton, which one of my testers did– you can see the cotton version on Ravelry. This pattern comes with lots of step-by-step photos to make it easy, which is why it costs an extra 50 cents (a steal, I tell you!).
If you’d like your pattern(s) super quick, I recommend you purchase through Ravelry since they’ll send you a download link and I don’t have to be there for that to happen. Otherwise, I promise to email you the PDF within 48 hours –although it will likely be much sooner than that. Happy crocheting!
