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?

I love the first hat! Is there a pattern available for it? Thanks!

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: http://www.etsy.com/listing/65204446/new-jenny-lee-crochet-hat-beanie-cloche. 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!
