Since I had my baby girl, my life and my projects revolve around her. She needed a new hat for the hot summer days as the old one didn’t fit anymore, so here it is!

The crochet raffia summer hat is a quick project, especially if you are used to crocheting with raffia. Nothing too difficult, just a little different than yarn.

It will take you just a few rows to get used to it if you are new to this kind of yarn. I would definitely recommend raffia yarn for this project because it has a nice structure and keeps the hat in shape without any problems.

On the other hand, if you are feeling adventurous you could try a cotton yarn, but not a very soft one. It would make the hat too floppy.
