I've knit about a million hats this winter after having only made one previous to that and now I'm just a touch obsessed. While I'm thrilled that it will be warm fairly soon (hopefully at least, NY weather is so temperamental), putting the winter accessories away is a sad process.

I've been going crazy trying to find a hat pattern appropriate for warmer weather, with no luck. Any suggestions?

And I keep fixing every habit that I break..

Do you belong to Ravelry?  If so, I found a whole bunch of patterns by searching : summer hat knit free
If you do not, you should look into it, it's a wonderful place to find patterns, both free and to buy.

What kind were you looking for?  I could see if some of the ones on Ravelry have the pattern on their own person webpages.

When in doubt, use more glue!

Look Ma, I'm on Ravelry!

You could also considering sticking with your winter patterns but using a lighter more breathable yarn. I think bamboo yarn is really nice for warm weather projects Smiley.

I made a summer hat for my daughter last year (she was having bad hair issues).  I made Berocco's "Dizzy" (it's free on their website) in a cotton yarn.  It's got holes in it to keep it cooler.  She wore it every day for a month.

I totally get your hat-frenzy.  When I learned to make hats I made like 50 of them.

I would think anything knit in a light fibre with eyelets for ventilation would be fine.  Perhaps this?

Here are some I found from ravelry(which you must join because it's a hub for all sorts of wonderful patterns) that look like they would be great:

First, this amazing sun hat:

Next, a highly fashionable cloche:

An adorable beanie:

And finally, a nice lace beret, perfect for keeping the head stylish and protecting from the sun Wink :

Good luck!
