• Hook: H, or size needed for specified gauge

Sizing: Measurements are approximate, actual subjects may vary.

6 M (14″), 1-2 Y (16”), 2-5 Y (18”), 5-8 Y (20”), Young Adult (22”), and Adult (24”)

Pattern Key
• St/Sts: Stitch / Stitches
• Sl St: Slip Stitch
• Ch: Chain
• Sc: Single Crochet
• Dc: Double Crochet
• FLO: Front Loop Only

Pattern Notes:

• Use these pictures to help place your increases on each row of your brim to create a fluid, floppy, round, hat; this will avoid specific points of increase.

• For the hat brim, the Ch 1 counts as your first St – it occupies the first space of each round.

• Increases should lean to the Left – they should not stack evenly.

    Helli, that’s a nice sunhat you have crocheted! I’m crocheting it too now and it’s fun, really. Could you please be so kind to explain me how to crochet the little flower? It looks so beautiful and cute on the sunhat, especially for the one I’m crocheting for my little niece
    Thank you in advance 😊 bye Ines
