Crochet Sun Visor – Preemie, Newborn, Toddler and Children’s Sizes
This crochet sun visor pattern is available five sizes for babies and children, including preemie, newborn, toddler and older children. The pattern is simple, making it easy for anyone who has mastered the basics of crochet.
The baby visor would make for a cute baby shower gift for summer babies. Pair it up with a baby blanket, a pair of baby booties, or even a cute baby outfit to make an entire gift set.
The visor will hold it’s shape pretty good, depending on how you crochet. However, after washing it may tend to flop a bit. Therefore, you may want to take a solution of fabric glue and water and stiffen it slightly. Another option is to line the underside with interfacing or a piece of felt.
I used an acrylic yarn, but to keep their heads even cooler in the hot sun, use a cotton yarn.
This kids visor is great for both boys and girls. If making it for girls you could attach a cute applique such as this rose applique or the flower that is used in this crochet baby headband pattern.

No sure if I have made a mistake but 40 ch for a baby is very very small am I missing something x x x I am using a 5mm crochet needle and Double knit wool
Hi Joan, You could always try one of the bigger sizes f the 40 chs is too small. :)
If I’m using an H-hook with worsted yarn, how many stitches per inch to ensure the suggested number of stitches work for the suggested size?
Or how many inches did your ch40 come out to be?
Sue, I’m sorry, I do not remember and don’t have it documented.
