I’m so excited to partner with five of my crochet designer friends and Premier Yarns to bring you this special Mother’s Day CAL. I designed a simple, large brimmed sunhat to coordinate with Maria’s Beach Day cover-up. We had a lot of fun collaborating on this set and hope you enjoy crocheting and wearing it!
I used Premier Cotton Fair for my sunhat, in Turquoise and White. I’ve worked with this yarn before and loved working with it, especially the fact that for a cotton blend, it didn’t dry my hands out!
Cotton Fair is a blend of 52% cotton and 48% acrylic, which makes it perfect for garments and year-round wear. The blend makes it a great cotton yarn to work with as it’s easy on your hands (one of my favorite things about it!). It’s a nice, soft, and smooth yarn with a beautiful sheen and it also creates incredible stitch definition! This yarn comes in a great range of bright solids and multi colors so you are sure to find just the right color for your project. Here are the specs from the manufacturer’s website:
- 52% Cotton, 48% Acrylic.
- 3.5 oz/100 g, 317 yds/290m.
- #2 Fine Weight.
- Cool iron. Machine Washable. Dry clean any solvent except Trichloroethylene.
- Crochet gauge, G-6 (4mm) hook: 18 sc & 20 rows = 4” (10.2cm).
- Knit gauge in st st, US 4 (3.5mm) needles: 23 sts & 29 rows = 4” (10.2cm).
For the Beach Day Sunhat I used 2 balls (or 420 yards) of White & 1 ball (or 25 yards) of Turquoise.

Photos were taken in Florida while we were on vacation for spring break. The wind was SO strong that my daughter had to hold the hat on her head the entire shoot!
