Handmade Monday: Crocheted Sun Hat

Having not been on a summer holiday for a few years, I am beginning to start thinking about what I'm going to take honeymooning.  I haven't got a sunhat and have been falling in love with the big wide-brimmed romantic looking ones on Pinterest. That's when I saw this beauty of a pattern from Stitchy Kits.

I cannot recommend this pattern enough. It's really clearly presented and I'm really chuffed  with the finished product.

It's made from just one 100g ball of 4-ply cotton yarn and I used a 3mm crochet hook as I learnt from my Attic24 granny bunting that my tension is a wee bit loose.  It's washable, travellable and I think it's pretty good-looking.

Happy Handmade Monday to all those who have hopped over from Handmade Harbour.  I can't wait to see what you've all been making this week.
