Parade of Spring Hats

It has been brought to my attention that postings have been a bit sparse lately. Therefore, here are some of the hats I've been making. All linked patterns are free downloads. And all of them are pretty easy to make.

Here we have a Crocheted Shell Stitch Preemie Hat. It's a stitch I haven't used with a hat before and I like the way it looks.

And this is the Mock Cable Baby Hat. It is very easy to make and does not use cable needles.

Here is a basic crocheted beanie with fdp's to add interest.

I've done this type of design on the Knifty Knitter but not on needles. The Simple Hat Pattern gave directions for this variation.

It's getting close to the time the local Farmers' Market will open so I've been looking for some new brimmed hats to sell.

The Beanie Brim Hat is a free pattern available on Ravelry. It really isn't flat on top; that's just the shape of my flower pot.

The Nubby Brim Cloche is another pattern from Ravelry.

The last hat is a Crocheted Brimmed Hat. It is fuller and looks like it will let your head breathe.

All of these hats were made with acrylic yarns. I'm planning on making the last three with cotton yarns as we get into summer.
