Keeping little heads protected from the sun is important. This hat with a turned up hem is versatile and perfect for summer weather when made from cotton, bamboo or even raffia.

You can knit this up in four different sizes from 0-18 months. Some variation can be made with yarn gauge. Just swatch and scale up or down the hat sizes to make it fit your babyies head.

The hat in the cover photo was made using one skein of Yashi Raffia yarn in Super Pink. The contrasting crochet flower was made with left over Yashi Raffia in Natural and the Super Pink
