The sun comes up higher and higher every day, so it`s already time to think of Crochet Sunhats for Kids. Sunhats are very practical and also stylish accessories not only for adults but for little ones too.

They are pretty simple to make and will look cute paired with any summer outfit. These sunhats are made with cotton yarn, therefore they are comfortable and the child`s head will not get too hot. But how about trying bamboo or raffia yarn instead.

In addition, they are crocheted loosely, and together with lacy designs, it makes them even more breathable. They all feature a brim, which is just the right size to keep the sun out of the child`s face.

These cute sunhats are a must for the summer season so get your hooks and yarns ready. Check out these free patterns under the links below and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook Fanpage and Pinterest for more creative ideas!

Baby Rainbow Dip Bucket Hat

Combine granny stitch with a classic bucket hat shape to get the most stylish sunhat for your kid. What’s more, it’s going to be a perfectly quick make because the size is small and the stitch works up fast. Use neutrals, just like the author did, or go for more vibrant colors. Either way, don’t stop on one. You know how it goes – while one of the hats ends up in a puddle, you’ve got another to swiftly put on your little rascal’s head.
