Hello everybody,

Spring is here, summer comes slowly: it’s time to crochet a beautiful sun hat!
I offer you today the pattern of a sun hat, created specially for my daughter.
She wishes a light hat, white color with a blue stripe, and a daisy, a poppy and a leaf to decorate (it’s accurate, and I love it!):

So here is “the flowers hat”, made with a paper yarn and with coton scraps for flowers.
It is extremly light, and I love the fit: it holds very well in shape compared to the cotton hats that I was able to realize previously, and this is rather nice!

For a hat on size 52 cm (for a girl 6-7 years old), you will need:

  • 2 to 3 balls of paper yarn (or raffia), the color you want + 1 ball of contrasting color.
  • coton scraps for decoratives flowers
  • G crochet (4mm)

You can work in rounds or in spirals, as you want.
Bound lines will be hidden by the flowers when you sew them.
It will however be advisable to switch to “round work” mode when you change colour if you do not wish to put a flower.

Flowers

You can adapt this hat in different ways, with or without flowers, by changing the flowers, by reducing the height, by widening the visor, etc….
You can also change the size by adding an increase row after row 11, or by removing row 11…
Anyway, have fun!

I wish you pleasant sunbathing and hope to see you soon for new creations!
