Hat-Making Season

Every summer, I (try) to crochet 200 – 250 hats to prepare for Craft Show Season (CSS).  It’s a lot between work, family, friends, and napping, but I normally come close to meeting the quota.

My summer this year is extra tight on time because:

  • I’m moving for the first time in my life (besides College)
  • I start a new job in August
  • I’ll be traveling to Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maine, Las Vegas, and California for 20 days straight
  • 4 of my friends are getting married
  • 2 beach trips in the works….

Needless to say, this summer’s looking busy…just how I like it!  I had free time this weekend so I raided the yarn stash to crocheted a few hats.   I’d like to share my latest creations with you.  I used my own crochet patterns for the hats and love how they turned out.

In retrospect, it appears I have a flower fixation at the moment, ha. Which hat is your favorite?

    Hi Ashley! I love this style of hat, too. I haven’t written out a specific pattern for it yet, but the bottom portion is very similar to the bottom of the Jenny Lee Hat I have on my Etsy: Hope this helps gets you started!

    I love these hats! Adorable. Can they fit big heads like mine? 😉 My favorite is the white one.

    Just thought you should know… I pinned the first hat to my pinterest board because I really like it. Within an hour 14 people had repined it. Let me know if you post a pattern for this hat. I (and others, obviously) would really like to have it!

    Thanks for the heads up dSuz! I think I wrote out the pattern for that hat a while ago with the intentions of posting on here, but not sure where that little guy ended up. If I re-write out the pattern, I”ll let you know! P.S. I Love Pinterest, too – so addicting!
