Lunette Sun Hat Free Crochet Along, Part 1

Lunette Sun Hat Free Crochet Along, Part 1

Hi! Welcome to my first crochet along (CAL)! I’m so excited to share this free crochet sun hat pattern with you. This pattern is written for all sizes! I can’t wait to see all of your hats and the creative choices you make to customize it.

Since hats work up quickly this will be a short CAL-just four parts. Today I’m releasing Part 1 of the CAL- the schedule and the materials needed to make your hat. I’m giving everyone a week to get materials, even though you might have enough on hand! I know some of you will want to order just the perfect yarn for the job. And after that Parts 2-4 will be released within a week of each other.

If you would like to purchase the complete pattern and work at your own pace, it’s available on Etsy and Ravelry now. The entire pattern will still be released free in parts as the Crochet Along through 7/16/18.

I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton in
Spunky Print shown in picture is teen/small adult which used almost all of the ball. I’m planning to work one up for my two year old in Lion Brand’s 24/7 cotton in Jade*, which will look lovely with her coloring. Any worsted weight yarn will work, those are just two of my favorites to work with.

stitch markers* I love my turquoise and silver ones from Miller Country Crafted*



1” x 1” = 4.5 sc x 4 rows                            


The hat is worked in the round from the top down. Each round is continuous, mark the first stitch of each round with a stitch marker. This is where the next round will start. Continue to move your stitch marker up to the first stitch of each round.
