Hats to crochet so Marshmallow mugs are ready for the summer sun


Four marshmallow mugs wearing crocheted hats made with Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn. Two hats look like bees and two are sunhats.

If you are crocheting along with me, this month's patterns mark halfway to a whole year's worth of mug hats! I love using the set I made for myself to decorate each month, and I have been making extras each month so I will have full sets to give away at the end of the year.


This month I have a bee pattern and a sunhat pattern perfect for the start of summer. Let's jump right in!


Here's a video tutorial:


Gauge:

14 hdc worked over 12 rows with G hook measures an approximate 4-inch-square


Yardage:

bee hat – 15.5 yards of I Love This Yarn in Yellow, 10 yards of I Love This Yarn in Black

sun hat – 38 yards of I Love This Yarn in Toasted Almond


Stitches:

mc – magic circle

ch - chain

sc – single crochet

sl st – slip stitch

hdc – half double crochet

tr – treble/triple crochet - yarn over twice, insert hook into next stitch, yarn over and draw yarn through stitch (4 loops on), yarn over and draw through 2 loops (3 loops remaining), yarn over and draw through 2 loops (2 loops on), yarn over and draw through the last 2 loops on the hook.

Reverse sc/crab stitch (if you are right-handed) – working to the right instead of the left as usual, insert hook in the stitch you just finished, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through both loops on the hook. It is a regular single crochet, but backward.


Notes:

- Start the first stitch of each row in the same stitch as your sl st

- The ch at the start of each row does not count as a stitch

- sl st to the first stitch of the row
