Cotton Adjustable Visor Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs


Cotton Adjustable Visor Crochet Pattern 

by Sara Sach of

This Visor is the perfect addition to any Summer outfit, 
whether you are going sporty, a Day in the sun or
 just a casual afternoon with friends at the beach.
It's Cotton, so it's cool.




It's adjustable for 
any size head, and
It's also fun and quick to
 stitch up.
Make one for every 
vacation outfit and
 you will
 set to go.



I chose to Use Peaches and Cream and Sugar and Cream 
Cotton yarns because the tend to hold the shape of the 
Visor Bill better then other cotton  yarns.
Also  handle lots of washings, well.
