Summer Joy Sunhat by Maria Bittner

Southern Comfort Summer Hat by Kathy Lashley

The project we voted to crochet for our August CAL is:




Yarn: 520 yards of Sport Weight Yarn
Suggested yarn:
 Premier Yarns Cotton Fair Solids
Hook: 3.25 mm (D)
Finished Sizes: One size
Supplies: Millinery Wire & Joiner


This is a free pattern on Jennifer’s blog and she has created a PDF version which is available for a nominal cost on Ravelry (if you prefer the PDF version). The hat was designed as part of our Mother’s Day CAL earlier this year. So if you have any leftover yarn when you are done your sunhat you may want to check out the other free patterns we designed using the same yarn.

The Premier Yarns Cotton Fair Yarns are available for purchase from Michael’s in Canada (that is where I picked mine up from) and Michael’s in the United States. So be sure to check for your coupons if you are heading to Michaels – you might be able to get it on sale! You can also purchase it directly from Premier’s website or even on Amazon 🙂 You will need 2 balls of the yarn to make the hat.

The Millinery Wire & Joiner is available for purchase in a few places online. I have purchased it directly from my friend Kathy in the past (ELK Studio). You might want to check out her shop here on Etsy: kathylashley 

The direct links to the products in her shop are:

If you are shopping in Canada you may also want to take a look at this shop which shows they will ship to Canada: LuluDeuxMillinery

Here are the direct links to the products in her shop:

Or I have ordered hat supplies from JudithM Millinery Supply House a few times and the shipping is pretty reasonable. You can check out her supplies here:

If you need help with this, here is a walk-through tutorial to show you how to add your Project on Ravelry. I thank you in advance for creating your project pages. It helps us keep track of the number of participants who complete their projects each month and it helps us decide which types of projects you enjoy (both for type and difficulty level!) for future Months.
