The Crochet Summer Stunner Cotton Hat is a textured design that features the arrow stitch and other eye-popping techniques.
Designed for me personally as I was loving the Summer Cotton Hat that has more of a feminine flair to it, I wanted a hat with a more square top with even more texture to it. A bit more masculine for my personal style.
The hat has a similar beginning to the Summer Cotton Hat but with slight changes and then drastic changes where it naturally turns downward at the crown.
There is a strategy in play with double and triple stranding to provide durability. You will see in the free pattern I applied speed starch as well to more it stiffer. I have provided a bonus diagram where I think it will get complicated and that’s the arrow stitching that is grabbing your visual attention. It’s easy, but knowing exactly where to do those double treble posts is helpful.
I do classify this as an intermediate-level project due to my texturing elements.

The Crochet Cotton Sun Hat uses the latest Bernat Softee Cotton yarn. Sized for an average adult female. Double-stranded for sturdiness.
Challenged by the social team of Yarnspirations to develop a summer based hat,
I didn’t want just straight double crochets as it’s too easy for me to do that. Instead, I used the stitch counts to give me a helping hand.
Using my preference of textured stitches, someone messaged me about the bean stitch earlier in the day before starting to design this. So I had the bean stitch on the brain, sort of speak, and wondered if I could through that in my hat.
The latest new yarn called Bernat Softee Cotton is not dishrag cotton. It’s fashion cotton on the light #3 level. I double-stranded to provide more strength and durability. The hat has substance and possibly a hat style you would find in a gift shop. The way the bean stitch and the 2 dc that share a stitch work together, visually gives me the impression of weaving and intention gapping spaces to let the heat from your head escape.

This hat is gorgeous. I love the texture and having a few spaces for ventilation is very smart.
I’ve made two of these hats now. I love them.
Where are your patterns now? We spent 2020 and 1/2 of 2021 moving to Arizona from California excep for the month my husband and I had covid and recovered. So I am just settling down to crochet again.
On our blog posts for patterns, there are two places to get the written patterns. The name of the pattern in blue lettering is a clickable link that leads to the pattern location. And there is also a pretty blue button that says pattern that also should lead to the written (this is usually a little bit further down into the blog post ). Hope that helps
Absolutely LUV the concept of the masculine version…thanks
