Summer Sun Hat
Note: A similar version of this hat pattern is available through the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program for $1.99 (but it’s re-worked for cotton yarn). I’m not adjusting the price here, but feel free to purchase it from either place.
This lightweight paper hat is the perfect accessory for summer days—whether you’re out on the beach or in the garden. The lacy stitch pattern lets the breeze in, and a shell stitched brim will keep the sun out of your eyes. Choose your favorite colors and make it yours!
