The Crochet Summer Stunner Cotton Hat is a textured design that features the arrow stitch and other eye-popping techniques.

Designed for me personally as I was loving the Summer Cotton Hat that has more of a feminine flair to it, I wanted a hat with a more square top with even more texture to it. A bit more masculine for my personal style.

The hat has a similar beginning to the Summer Cotton Hat but with slight changes and then drastic changes where it naturally turns downward at the crown.

There is a strategy in play with double and triple stranding to provide durability. You will see in the free pattern I applied speed starch as well to more it stiffer. I have provided a bonus diagram where I think it will get complicated and that’s the arrow stitching that is grabbing your visual attention. It’s easy, but knowing exactly where to do those double treble posts is helpful.

I do classify this as an intermediate-level project due to my texturing elements.
