May I introduce “Pampelonne”, my new fun & fancy summer hat crochet pattern, that is ever so trendy. As soon as this one came off the hook, I have been wearing it as my treasure. I love it.
I promised, I would post it on the blog this week. And here it is. With some lovely photos, plus a download link so you can make it too.
As just about every designer in their Spring 2020 collection is featuring lots of hats, you will be very ON-TREND with this little number.
This hat both a touch of whimsy and some elegance about it, and will go with many summer outfits, dresses, Tshirts and bikinis alike.
Some say that hats are great to cover up bad hair days as well, but let’s not go there. I personally like my fresh shower in the morning ;-)
Anyhow, now that we have splendid Spring weather (so good that it feels like summer), it is the perfect time to crochet a summer hat. Like me, you get to wear it right away, and all summer long!
Pattern Hat Sizing
The pattern is based on an M size and this one size fits most. The model in the picture head size is an S, whereas mine is a M. My partner’s head is an L. Verdict: this hat fits all. However, if you prefer to size up or down, instructions to do so are in the pattern. It’s simple.
The Summer Hat Crochet Pattern
Pick up your Pampelonne hat pattern now:
The Yarn I picked for this is Debbie Bliss Cotton Demin DK. I made it so you need just 1 skein of it. I used a hook size that is slightly smaller than the one recommended for this yarn, to create that perfect tight finish.
It was a delight to work with, I must say. And as I have another 2 skeins of the same yarn and in this really unique pale yellow color, I will make something to match.
To give you a feel of what this hat would look like in another color, let me show you the hat in demin blue and in just-off-white as well.
