Easy Childs Crochet Sunhat FREE Pattern (3-6 months and 6-12 months)

Free Crochet Toddler Summer sunhat pattern and it will fit a 3- 6 months and i have included instructions and pattern to size it up to a 6-12 months. This is a simple bucket-shaped baby sunhat, perfect for protecting baby's ears, and back of the neck, whilst still shading their eyes from the sun.

Easy Baby Sunhat Pattern FREE 

I just love this easy crochet sunhat hat pattern, which is just perfect for a small toddler.
As it sits nice and snug around the head yet the fluted brim will help to keep the sun's rays away.

What you will need to crochet the sunhat 

  • I used a lightweight cotton and size 4.0 hook
  • The hat is worked in half double crochet - hdc
  • The hat measures about 16 inches in circumference around the baby's head and 17.5 inches around the bottom circumference of the hat. Which gives it that delightful fluted bucket hat look.
  • Finish off with some ribbon or as I have done a lovely little Crochet FLower
  • This Pattern was one I wrote way back in the beginning! This sunhat pattern has now been re-worked revised and re-written
