Welcome to June's Pinterest Challenge! The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate us to not just pin, but to make it happen!
This month's challenge is to do a Summer project.first Pinterest challenge back in April. I did finish the bag. It is smaller that a typical beach bag, but it will hold a beach towel and snacks. I wanted to make a small pocket for it for a smart phone, but I ran out of yarn. However, I did decide to switch gears and make a yellow hat. I decided to do this after making one for my Barbie doll.
This hat features the 3 single crochet small shell I use in my socks (Small Shell Socks (treasuresmadefromyarn.com) and Toe Up Small Shell Sock Pattern (treasuresmadefromyarn.com)
I also made fingerless gloves using this stitch (Small Shell Fingerless Gloves (treasuresmadefromyarn.com))
I totally winged it making this hat. It was a little difficult working in the increases in the hat and brim. Overall it worked out. To be honest, I haven't made too many sun hats. I don't normally wear them.
Maybe in the future I will have a pattern for this hat.

I love both the hat and bag! Oh how I wish I could crochet! Thanks for sharing your awesome creativity!ReplyDelete
I love this hat! I need one for myself!ReplyDelete
It looks just like a beach hat with the floppy brim ~ great job just winging it! It's a fun summer color, too.ReplyDelete
If you do manage a pattern I'd love to see it. A hat like this that will just squish into a bag or case is so practical for holidays. This colour is just fabulous :-)ReplyDelete
That hat is really cute! I started wearing floppy hats like this in the sun just the last couple of years as I am starting to notice more sun spots as I age.ReplyDelete
