Sunflower Sun Hat Crochet Pattern

Share this

I love summer! Enjoying the sun, being outdoors, swimming, campfires…. I even have summers off of work, which I LOVE!!! Not only does it give me more time with my family, but it also gives me more time to design. Spending plenty of time outdoors, and missing my winter hats, I definitely like an array of sun hats! And this free sunflower sun hat crochet pattern is simple yet elegant, easy yet fun!

I named this pattern after the Sunflower Ribbon embellishment. Love it? You can make one too! You can purchase the tutorial in Ella Bella Bow’s Craftsy Store or Etsy Store, or contact Ella Bella Bows to order made ribbon sculptures! I used the Ribbon Starflower and Sunflower pattern. Like her page on Facebook to see all her wonderful ribbons!
