Easy Toddler Sun Hat

July 11, 2017

This Easy Toddler Sun Hat is a great beginner hat project and only uses a single crochet.

It worked great in the pool because of the cotton yarn. It’s comfortable, light, durable, and works well in water. Cotton yarn is my go-to for summer projects. And you can see the hat worked well to keep a lot of the sun out of my little guy’s face. I promise he did enjoy the water… eventually. ūüėČ Now he’s like a fish!

This pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download HERE in my Etsy shop.
