Crochet Sun Hat Free Pattern.
When you have a crochet addiction, you need to crochet 365 days a year. Nobody needs a winter hat in this summer heat.
Thankfully making sun hat is the perfect project.
In this pattern & tutorial, I will teach you how to make this stylish crochet summer hat. I’m using Red Heart yarn for this crochet tutorial but you can use cotton yarn because it breathes better in the heat. In this sun hat crochet pattern we will be using Double crochet & Single crochet stitches.
