Spring Blossoms in UK

Each day a new discovery!  

I love springtime in the UK, when everything is bursting to life with vibrant colours. Each walk finds glorious new blossoms on show and even when walking down the same old street we discover more and more trees and shrubs in full bloom!

SPRINGTIME CROCHET INSPIRATION

So with all this spring blossom and sunshine, I have now started on designing some new crochet sun hats for the coming of those amazing sunny days.

SUN HAT DETAILS

I am using one of my favourite 100% cotton yarns from Bendigo Woollen Millsit is ever so soft and really comfortable to wear and perfectly special for your little one!

I have focused my crochet sun hat patterns for the three (3) months plus age group, however, having said that, these patterns can be easily modified for larger head sizes also.

Here's a little peek of the first sun hat pattern to be released in next few days.  It's called SPRING Sun Hat Pattern. Pattern will be available from my online stores - 
CRAFTSY         ETSY         RAVELRY

This new SPRING sun hat pattern is a bit more involved than my previous long standing Crochet Sun Hat Pattern called SUNSHINE which I have been making for many years now (SEE BELOW).

SUNSHINE Crochet Sun Hat Pattern is simple, versatile and very adaptable to different yarns and can be easily modified for larger head sizes also. You can make it plain or striped.  It's all up to you - play and have some creative fun with it!

Pattern is available from my online stores -

OK you may want to follow the pattern the first time, but then once it is done, go ahead and make it using a different yarn and hook size, or adjust the number of stitches to achieve a smaller or larger fitting. It's all fun, and experimentation is always good!

Here are a few examples of how you can change the look with some stripes, using the basic sun hat pattern.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

You can learn so much VERY QUICKLY, especially from the ones you crochet and then rip. ALWAYS remember to enjoy yourself and enjoy the beautiful spring weather, wherever you are, maybe it's a bit soon for some, but hey it's coming, and soon you'll be complaining about the heat!
