 SUPPLIES:
- 3 skeins of worsted weight cotton yarn (150 g )
 I have used Drops Paris Yarn - light turquoise uni colour 02;  
(Weight/yardage pro skein: 1.8 oz (50 g) = approx 82 yds (75 m))

- small amount of Drops Paris - white uni colour 16 for the cord

- 3.5 mm crochet hook, for example Clover Amour Crochet Hook, Size E, 3.5mm

Yarn Needle

- Scissors

TIPS FOR A STIFFER HAT:
If you would like a firmer sun hat or only a firmer brim, you can use a fabric stiffener, for example Impex HT1600 | Hi Tack Fabric/Textile Stiffener.

You can also work the last round of the brim over a brimlock or hat wire.  ( I have not used any.)

SIZE: Adult Women. One size will fit most women.

GAUGE: 10 crossed double crochet (20 sts)  = 10 cm or 4 inches

STITCHES. TERM (US) AND ABRREVIATIONS:

magic ring

- ch: chain

- hdc: half double crochet

- dc: double crochet

- st: stitch

- beg: beginning

- csdc: chainless starting double crochet

Special Stitches:

Front Crossed Double Crochet (fcrdc): sk 1 st, work 1 dc into the next st, 1 dc back into skipped st going in front of the last dc just made.

Watch this Video Tutorial on YouTube to learn how to make a fcrdc!

Back Crossed Double Crochet (bcrdc): sk 1 st, work 1 dc into the next st, 1 dc back into skipped st going behind the last dc just made.

Watch this Video Tutorial from Crochet Cabana on YouTube, to learn how to Back Crossed Double Crochet!


NOTES:

The ch 1 at beg of rounds does not count as a stitch. Work the first st of the round into the same st as the beg ch1.

The joining at the end of the round will be made into the top of the first hdc, not in the beginning ch1.

Round 1: With main color yarn make a magic ring.

Ch1, 10 hdc ino ring. Join with sl st to top of the first hdc.

(10 sts total)

Round 10 (Back Crossed Round):

ch2 (will not count as a st here and the next rounds), work 45 bcrdc sts around , sl st to top of first dc.

Notes: To hide the ch 2 at beg of rounds start the first bcrdc this way: skip the first 2 sts, work 1 dc into the next st, 1 dc back into 2nd skipped st going behind of the last dc just made.

Before you make the last bcrdc you’ll have 1 st left in the round. Work the last bcrdc of the round: skip the last st, work 1 dc into the very first st of the round (the st below the beginning ch2), 1 dc back into the sk st going behind the last dc made.

Round 11 (Front Crossed Round): ch2, work 45 fcrdc sts around , sl st to top of first dc.

Note: Use the same technique as for the Back Crossed Round to hide the ch2.

Rounds 12- 17: Repeat as rounds 10 - 11.

Round 18: work 1 csdc, 1 dc into each of next 2 sts, ch2, sk next 2 sts, *1 dc in each of next 3 sts, ch2, sk next 2 sts, repeat from * around, sl st to top of beg csdc.

Round 19: 1 csdc, 1 dc in each of next 2 dc, 2 dc into ch 2 space, *1 dc in each of next 3 dc, 2 dc into ch 2 space, repeat from * around, sl st to top of beg csdc. ( 90 sts)


The Brim:

Round 20: 1 csdc, 1 dc in each of the next 3 sts, 2dc in next st, *1 dc in each of the next 4 sts, 2dc in next st, repeat from * around, sl st to top of beg csdc. (108 sts)

Round 25: ch 2 (will not count as a st), work 72 frcrdc sts around; sl st to top of first dc.

Cut yarn. Fasten off. Weave in all ends.


Crochet Cord:

The cord is worked using the Romanian Point Lace Cord.

 Romanian Point Lace Crochet Cord


(Note: As an alternative, you can work a chainless foundation single crochet. It will not look as pretty as the Romanian Point Lace Crochet though.)

Watch the Video Tutorial by Planet June below to learn how to crochet the Romanian Point Lace Cord! 


With a 3.5 mm crochet hook and a contrasting color work a cord measuring 58-60 cm. Leave a long end of yarn to sew the cord ends together after inserting it through the sun hat.

Weave the cord through the ch 2 spaces of round 18.  Place the hat on your head  and adjust the length of the cord to make the hat fit; then sew the ends of the cord together being careful not to twist the cord.


I hope you enjoy this sun hat pattern!
