Easy Sun hat pattern, written for 4 different sizes and easily adjustable to fit any head circumference.

Its gradually getting warm over here such that a crochet sun hat is much needed when I go out exercising. The most exciting part of this design is the fact that this hat can pass as a ear warmer or as head warmer!

This quick an easy pattern can be made using any weight of yarn! simple measure as you crochet. This crochet sun hat is available in 4 different sizes – Toddler, child size, Teen and Adult sizes.

Another beautiful thing about this pattern is that you can stiffen this hat to take shape, I’ve included a step by step tutorial for doing this.
