Summer Hats

Our local farmer's market opened a couple of weeks ago. Nan got a table and drafted me to help supply projects. She wanted to see if her loomed acrylic hats would sell. We were excited when 6 of them did. Of course, we can't expect people to go on buying warm hats as summer comes, so we've both been busy coming up with other items. I decided to try crocheting cotton hats. It wasn't hard to find some great ideas on Ravelry.

This hat and the two in the next picture are from the pattern Gulf Shores. If you haven't been to this site, there are lots and lots of good patterns.

Then this Crochet Rolled Brim Hat caught my eye. On this first hat, I actually followed the pattern. But then, as you can see, I began improvising. All were fun to make; here's hoping customers like them!
