Thank you Taryn Avery Photography for the beautiful photos.

Here is another crochet pattern that uses the  Little Darlings crochet flowers pattern, and coordinates with the All Tied Up Top I posted last week!

The Fruit Punch Sunhat couldn’t be simpler to make and more comfortable to wear. I designed it in a simple half double crochet, with a band in the Trinity Stitch. I found a nice tutorial for you on Oombawka Designs if you have trouble.

I’ve sized it from newborn to adult and of course you can customize the height from the crown and size of the brim too. I added this cute little flower and you can too with my Little Darlings flower pattern (click the picture below).

    You can print. Just use the PRINT FRIENDLY button in the green box all the way at the bottom of the post (below the pictures).

    It sure would be nice if I could print this pattern. I have oodles of nieces all different ages and it is a pain to hand copy them.

    Thank you for your note. I appreciate your comments about the theft, and many designers are suffering with this. Unfortunately, there will always be people who try to profit off the sweat of others. I believe in putting positive energy into the universe and Karma, so hopefully, over time more people will share in the positive and reject the negative behaviors 🙂

    This is absolutely DARLING! I’ve snagged this AND the All Tied UP Top! and cannot wait to make for my little granddaughter1
    THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!
    I hope that no one does to you what has happened to Annette at Wolf Crochet! She is shutting down her blog, Ravelry page and FB because folks are taking her patterns and putting them into ebooks and selling them on the internet for profit! THAT IS STEALING! I wish there were a way to stop this theft!
    These greedy selfish people are trying to profit from the generosity of wonderful folks like you who create and SHARE so freely with us. Bless you, dear and all like you who have helped so many of us increase our own hooky ability!
