It’s hot out there baby! Crochet a simple visor to shade your sweet baby’s eyes from the sun and summer heat. This crochet pattern is great for beginners who are beginning to work in the round or for anyone wanting to create an adorable little visor for baby. I love how quick this pattern works up and I know you’ll enjoy making these to give as gifts too.

Change up and personalize your baby visor by alternating colors, leaving the hat solid, or using other holiday color themes – your choice! The instructions below with the “optional color change” will create the pink and turquoise or red and white visors pictured. The pink and turquoise visor is a size 0 – 6 months and the red and white visor is a size 6 – 12 months. (Remember to apply sunscreen to baby’s head if you’re headed out into the sunshine.)
