Free Patterns: Crochet Summer Hat


Summer is surely felt half around the globe. But here in the Philippines summer is all year round. But this month of July we surely experienced the Rainy Season. It rains every day, and when it rains it surely pours. That's not just a metaphor but it is literally raining here all the time this year.

But still, when the sun is up, it sure felt like summer all the time. The internet is full of so many free patterns for crochet. There so many choices to make if you want to start on a project. I compiled some free patterns for a sun hat.



  1. Country Girl by Drops Design  - Head over to Drops design and you will find an endless choice of beautiful project. They never fail to impress me.
  2.  The Beginner Wide Brim Hat by Jenny and Teddy I like the blue Flower and how wide it is. 
  3. Beach day Sun Hat by A Crocheted Simplicity.   This is simply pretty.
  4. Summer Harmony by Drops Design. Again Drops Design offers so many beautiful free pattern.


And my very own version of a Summer Hat

I made this one in 2015. But I did not write down the pattern, so far this is my favorite of all the hat that I've made. I will try to make something like this again and write down the pattern to share for all of you. 

So I hope you all have a wonderful summer. It's wonderful to stay under the sun once in a while just make sure to put on something to protect you from the harmful rays. Don't forget your Sunny Hat and your Sunblock all the time while on the beach.

Ice Candy/Freezie Holder


In the Philippines, it is called Ice Candy or Ice Pop. In other countries, it is also called Freezie. But whatever it is called, it is sure a treat to everyone, most of all for the kids.

Here in the Philippines summer almost never ends. Although this month the rainy season starts, it still gets hot sometimes. So on a hot day, an Ice Candy surely is in demand for my kids. But it can get messy and they often ask for a hand towel to hold the Ice Candy to protect their little fingers from the cold. So I got the idea of making a holder for them. They did love it and was so happy that it is not that messy anymore and they can hold the Ice Candy for long without their hands getting numb. But most of all they all love it.

Materials
  • Red Heart Super Saver
  • G/4.00mm Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry needle
  • Stitch Markers
  • Scissors
Stitches Used
  • ch - chain
  • sc - single crochet
  • sl st - slip stitch

Skill Level - Beginner

Instructions

Round 1.  Magic Ring, 6 SC into the ring. Do not join continue to work in rounds. You can now use your stitch marker to mark as you go.  If you want it to be in many colors you can change as you go. 6 SC

Round 2.  2 SC in each stitch around. 12 SC

Round 3.  SC in the first stitch, 2 SC in next. Repeat all around. 12 SC

Round 4-24. SC in each stitch. 18 SC

Fasten off and weave all ends.

That's how easy it is. A good stash buster and a good project also to practice your skill if you are only starting to learn crochet. 

Here are some pictures of the kids enjoying a hot day with an Ice Candy. They sure love to pose for pictures.

Violet Baby Shoes

It's finally done! I've been dying to finished this pattern for everyone. I love making baby shoes but have stopped though because no one is using my baby shoes, for my kids have all grown up and are no longer babies but they will always be my "babies". Then my sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last February and here I am again making beautiful crochet things for our newest bundle of joy.

Yes I know she was born in February and it's already the end of June, and I just posted this pattern today. It's because we've been so busy, from the closing of classes (March in the Philippines), to super full of activities in the summer (April-May) and the opening of classes (June). And in between those months, we've moved to our new home. It's not done yet but it is our own now. We've been staying at our Aunt's house for the past 7 years and finally, we have a home to call our own.

So that is why this pattern is so past overdue. I wish this coming month I'll be able to crochet more and share more.
