The heat is on and getting warmer! Crochet a simple visor to shade your eyes from the sun and summer heat. This crochet pattern is great for beginners who are learning to work in the round or for anyone wanting to create a simple and fun visor for kids, teens and adults. This pattern works up and is a great stash buster too!

Change up and personalize your visor by alternating colors, leaving the hat solid, or using holiday or team color themes – your choice! The instructions below are for a basic solid visor, but you can change colors at any row to create a striping effect or color block. The navy blue and lime green visor is a child size and the red and turquoise visor is a teen size. The orange and green visor will fit an average adult head.

*Stitch guide to create larger sizes is marked in parentheses throughout pattern.
*Using two strands of yarn to crochet this pattern will result in a more stiff visor, if you desire.
