Sweet Ella Valentine is a free crochet pattern designed for toddlers and children. This hat has been tested on a 2 year old and a 6 year old- fitting both of them perfectly.
While yarn shopping at Hobby Lobby last Friday, my daughter Ella snatched some fuzzy pink yarn off the shelf. She quickly threw it into the cart and yelled out “Ellas!”
After playing with the yarn I decided to go for a soft and furry pink hat. I ask Ella if she would rather me make her a hat with hearts or an Easter chick hat. I knew what her answer would be— I don’t believe she knows what a “chick” is at the age of 2…. but she is always surprising me with all of her smarts. For the next hour all she would say to me was “hearts” while watching me finish her hat and weave in ends. As soon as the hat was complete, I grabbed my camera and she started striking poses for me. <3

The time has come for me to make myself a hat!This free crochet pattern is designed to fit teens and adults. I used two strands of Redheart Love to work this simple and quick earflap hat up. I wanted to use two strands so it would be thicker, squishy, and stretchy— and as a bonus, it made it a very quick project! I love my new hat!! Please excuse the poor quality photo. Last night I purchased a new camera and I am still learning how to use it. Cameras have changed so much in the last 10 years.. leaving me feeling very outdated!
Shortly after learning how to crochet, I searched the web for a simple sun hat pattern. It didn’t take long for me to realize I was going to have to pay for one or write one myself. The great thing about sun hats is that they are great all year long! Even in the winter, especially when on a long car ride on a sunny day. One of the most annoying things for my daughter is driving into the sun while on a road trip. She is still too young to know to keep her sunglasses on.. so instead, we bring the crochet sun hat too!
Here is a list of the FREE crochet sun hat patterns I have written so far.
6-9 Month Sun Hat
9-18 Month Sun Hat
Toddler Sun Hat
Child Size Sun Hat
Adult Sun Hat
