We love spending summers outdoors, whether it's at the beach, bike-riding, gardening, or just going on leisurely walks. For creative knitters & crocheters, a brand new sun hat--to protect you from the summer sun--is just a few steps away with this month's YarnPlay patterns!
Fast, easy, and with step-by-step instructions for adding wire for the brim, these patterns will become staples in your summer crafting repertoire! Designer Kimberly Hamlin breaks down the steps for these two hats with photos so that you're sure to get the best results possible!

Customize your hat by changing the color (there are 21 solid and variegated colors of Nature's Choice Organic Cotton!), adding stripes, or even embroidering it. Remember that a pattern is just a jumping off point for your creativity!
