This is the Sign Of The Times Hat and like the name, it really is indicative of the times we are living in.
As we approach colder weather in the northern hemisphere, we will not only have to deal with the cold and wind, but also the season of colds and flu. We are already doing everything to combat Covid-19 by social distancing and wearing masks, washing our hands, and not touching surfaces. My new hat design comes with buttons to accommodate a face-mask and then an attachment to cover the face-mask underneath.
We all want to enjoy the outdoors and with so much ahead of us-sport events, holidays, and other situations where we may be near others, this hat is the perfect way to accommodate a face-mask while battling the elements!
My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos even if we don’t live together.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.

Sew a button on each side of the hat near the ears so the mask can be buttoned on. I sewed my buttons on the inside of the hat but you can sew them on the outside if you’d like. I liked the idea of flipping the hat brim up and having the buttons exposed if I wanted them to be. Otherwise they are hidden inside and your mask can attach to the inside buttons.
