Bead and Lace Hat

This crocheted hat pattern is perfect for all seasons, including the summer. The open stitch allows the head to breathe and the brim can help to keep the sun out.

Wear it with all types of hair to accessorize or to add an extra layer of warmth in cooler weather.

You can make this with or without the brim. Either way, it makes for a nice gift idea for just about anyone.

The Size

This hat will fit a women’s small to average head. If you need a larger hat, you could try making it in a slightly thicker yarn and larger hook. You could also increase or decrease your stitch count as long as they are made in multiples of two.

Use this crochet hat size chart as a reference if you need to make adjustments. It’s always best to take measurements of your head circumference, but when not possible, a chart is the next best thing.

The Yarn

Originally I made this hat in an unknown cotton/polyester blend. I tried Caron Simply Soft, it worked but it didn’t come out quite as nice. Red Heart Shimmer, on the other hand, worked out well for one of my testers.

Experiment with your favorite yarn. It might even work out in a heavier DK weight yarn.
