Sunshine & Roses Crochet Floppy Hat

June 23, 2017

This Sunshine & Roses Floppy Hat is bright and beautiful and the perfect addition to any girl’s summer closet. The hat is made with a V Stitch and the stitch combined with the bright yellow reminded me of sun rays.

 

The cotton yarn makes it a great summer hat. Not only is it light and airy, but it can be worn in the pool or the beach.

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