I love yarn. If you've read more than one of my blog posts you've probably already figured that out. I also really like hats. I've been on the hunt for some nice crochet hat patterns for women to use with lighter weight yarns, especially now that I live in a warmer climate. I've been sadly disappointed with how few I've been able to find. (I'm putting together a crochet hat pattern using sock yarn this week! I can't wait to show it to you when it's finished!)
These hat patterns all use lighter weight yarn.
1. The Yenni Slouch Hat
I can't tell you how much I love the look of this hat by Little Monkeys Crochet. When the pattern came out in October I was drooling. I did promise myself that I would finish my current project list of time sensitive projects before I would crochet this hat for myself. Did I mention that it's free?
2. Lace Hat
This easy (free) pattern uses Red Heart's Heart & Sole yarn. (Get it? Sole?)
3. Linda Permann Petal Beret
This one is a paid pattern, but just look at how gorgeous that design is! Wow!
4. Pizzelle Beret
Here's another one by Linda. This one also calls for lace weight yarn. Again, a paid pattern.
5. Turquoise Mandala Slouchie Beanie
I have yet to crochet a Mandala of any kind. It's certainly on my crochet bucket list. This hat is a pretty awesome way to showcase this form of stitchery. Kim is such a talented designer, and she generously offers this pattern for free.
Also worth mentioning, Cream of the Crop Crochet has a great (free) Short Slouchy Pattern. It's a very basic crochet pattern using fine yarn.
How about you? Have you crocheted a hat using lightweight yarn? What patterns have you used? Please tell me!
