The Everyday Summer Hat (Bulky Weight Version)

As promised, here’s the bulky weight version of The Everyday Summer Hat pattern I released last week! Have you tried making one for yourself yet? Please share with us on Instagram and please, don’t forget to tag me @stringsandcuddles so I could see and share it!

For this version, I used Lion Brand Rewind Tape yarn. It was actually one of my tester’s idea to use this yarn. I gave it a try and tada — the born of The Everyday Summer Hat – Bulky Weight version!!! I just love it when crafty friends help and support you! So, thank you, Sarah | Sarah’s Yarn! You’re simply amazing!

The only difference of this version to the original one is of course, the type or category of yarn and the crochet hook being used. Since we used a bulky weight yarn, the number of stitches and rounds were reduced. With that being said, this version is much faster to make compare to the worsted weight version.

If you haven’t seen the original version, please click here! Let me know which version is your favorite one. I love these two versions but I am liking the original one just a little bit more, LOL!!!

Let’s get started!

You can start by chaining 40 (or at least 3x the number of stitches the gauge of the pattern calls for), being careful not to twist your chains, work your first stitch (CSSC) in the back loop of the very first chain and in every ch around. Continue working until you have at least 15 rounds (or the number of rounds the gauge of the pattern calls for). Lay your work flat and then measure it.
