Highlight Your Crochet Hat This Spring

Apr 19, 2012

Spring is here, and I am excitedly going through my collection of crocheted hats and scarves. I know that may seem backward. Hats and scarves are for winter, right? But Colorado winters necessitate bundling up in a heavy down coat and those wonderful hats and scarves, though warm, are difficult to really see.

So spring is the perfect time of year to really show off your crocheted accessories. With the warmer temperatures, that lovely hat or scarf may be all you need to ward off the lingering chill, and without a bulky coat, your work can really shine.

 
Crocheted Cloche Hat

 

For days when the weather hovers between jacket and coat temperatures, try pairing a warmer wool hat with your jacket. I love the button embellishments on the Candy Cloche. This stylish accessory works up quickly in a bulky wool and alpaca yarn. I might work up several in different colors and play with embellishing them with buttons, crochet flowers, and beads.


 
Crochet Motif Hat The Amelia Hat and Scarf is the perfect addition to an outfit on a warm spring evening. This breezy pair is also ideal for temperate days. The wool, alpaca, bamboo-blend yarn adds great warmth, but the openwork motifs keep this scarf and hat set from becoming too warm. 
 
Crochet Brim Hat If a trip to the tropics is in your spring plans, don't forget your floppy brimmed sun hat. The Fun in the Sun Hat by Annette Petavy is a fun-and-easy 100% cotton chapeau. The wide brim will keep the sun off of your face, and the stripes are just fun!

Best wishes,
