Ciuci Sun Hat - Free Crochet Pattern

My younger sister asked me to design a crochet sun hat for her.  And this is what I came up with:  a lacy sun hat with a wavy brim - named after my sister's nickname - Ciuci! 
Thank you my pretty sis for modeling your sun hat for us! :)

Ciuci Sun Hat - Free Crochet Pattern on myhobbyiscrochet.com



This sun hat is worked with easy crochet stitches, such as single crochet and half double crochet.

The braided cord adds a final touch, but it's optional! You can use embellishments of your choice, such as crochet flowers, bows, etc...

Here is how it looks simple, without the braiding.

Ciuci Sun Hat - Free Crochet Pattern on myhobbyiscrochet.com






GAUGE: 19 sc in width with hook size 3.5 cm [US E/4] = 10 cm

SIZE: Adult Women, Size S/M, 54-56 cm head circumference

NOTES: The hat is started at the top using single crochet stitches worked in spiral rounds, without joining. Place a stitch marker into top of first stitch, move the stitch marker as you go, placing it always into the first st of the round.
Once you begin the lace pattern, the rounds will be joined with slip stitches. The joining at the end of the rounds will be made into the top of the first stitch, not into the beginning ch1.

SUPPLIES:

- 3 skeins of DK (11 wpi) cotton yarn (150 g )

I have used Drops Cotton Light - White (Weight/yardage pro skein: 50 grams (1.76 ounces) = 105 meters (115 yards)

- small amount of contrasting colour, here Drops Cotton Light - Turquoise for the cord

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

- 1 stitch marker

- Scissors

STITCHES, TERMS (US) AND ABBREVIATIONS:

- magic ring 

- ch: chain

- sc: single crochet

- hdc: half double crochet

- hdc-V: half double crochet V st: (1 hdc, 1ch, 1 hdc) worked into same st

- ch1sp: the chain 1 space here will be the ch space in the middle of the hdc-V st.

- (....) x: repeat the sequence of stitches the number of times specified in the pattern



INSTRUCTIONS:

Sun Hat Brim - last round

Braided Cord: Cut 9 lengths contrasting yarn of 1 metre each. Make a basic 3 strand flat braid, holding each 3 strands of yarn together. The finished braided strand measures 75 cm. 

3 Strand Flat Braid

Knot the ends of the braid using an adjustable knot and place it on your sun hat, above the brim. After trying it on your head, you can adjust the circumference of the braided strand. 
Now you can sew the braid onto the hat if you like; you can also let it removable and make several color braids, changing them to fit your outfits.

Tip: Iron the brim around to give it more firmity. A fabric stiffener would be a good idea too.

I hope you enjoy this pattern!
