Dishcloths or washcloths are probably the first items a beginner crocheter would make. Make a few of them using this crochet pattern and you have an eco-friendly towel for all your kitchen cleaning purposes. Make them in different colors, say one for cleaning your dishes and one for cleaning your kitchen surface and so on. Take care to use 100% cotton yarn for good absorbency as well as that roughness that will leave your dishes squeaky clean.

Sunsational Sun Hat, Crochet Pattern

Crochet Sun Hat Pattern

Sun Hat Crochet Pattern

Crochet Pattern for Woman's Sun Hat

Pin it for later:

Are you looking for a Sun Hat Crochet Pattern that will make a statement? Your search ends here! This hat has a spiral design that extends seamlessly all the way to the edge of the brim. Millinery wire and a joiner are used for the brim. If you make a brim that is 3 1/2 inches wide, it keeps its shape even without the wire, but adding the wire is highly recommended. A link to purchase the wire and joiners is provided in the pattern. It comes very cheap at 95 cents per yard.

I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Delux yarn for these hats and loved it. Working with cotton yarn generally hurts my hands but not this one. It is a little thinner than Lily Sugar n' Cream and seemed just the right gauge for this project. You can finish the hat in just a day and have a Sunsational sun hat ;). A big thank you to Betty Bridges for suggesting the name.

* The pattern includes sizes Baby, Toddler, Child and Adult.

* The pattern is written in standard American terms.

* It uses worsted weight cotton yarn and a 4.5mm Hook.

* A 1 1/2 yard Millinery wire and joiner are used for the Brim. Link to purchase it is provided in the pattern. It comes cheap at 95 cents per yard.
