When my daughter Raina grew out of the first hat I made her it was the middle of summer. Because I was (am?) obsessed with crochet, I had to make her a replacement straight away. But because it was so warm – well, warm by Dutch summer standards – I had to come up with a cool alternative.
So, using cotton yarn, I whipped this together using a pattern I made up as I went along (must start writing these down) and a butterfly I found on Pinterest. Raina is about six months old in this photo, and it fits her perfectly.
So far it has also been one of the most requested items I make, so I’m busy making more! Want one for the warmer weather? Just send me a message or comment below.
