FREE Crochet Pattern – Splish Splash!

The August Chameleon Hat, Splish Splash, finds itself at the beach. The brim has been transformed into a visor and it sports some fun sea creatures too!

This month’s Chameleon Hat is a celebration of summer and the beach. I modified the brim into a visor, to keep sun out of sensitive eyes and for a little fun I turned to Moogly for a nice collection of sea creature appliques. I added a starfish, jellyfish, coral and even a little crab that is trying to climb on board!

Or, keep it simple with a flip-flop and starfish. Of course, you can embellish it any way you like or leave it plain too!
