Crochet simple sun hat

Crochet simple sun hat

Time for Summer accessories! A wide brimmed hat is a must to block UV rays. I’ve designed a ribbed crochet sun hat with light weight-coated cotton yarn. This would be a quick and easy to crochet project to try xD

Materials: ( I used )
3.25 mm crochet hook
Light weight/ DK yarn: coated white cotton
Yarn needle
Scissors
Ribbon

Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc for every first dc of each row/round, so just choose your best technique 🙂

This crochet simple sun hat pattern is adult size ( 22 inches head circumference, one size fits most ). If you don’t have coated cotton, use raffia or waxed cotton yarn instead.

Special stitch used:

V stitch: ( dc, ch1, dc ) into same stitch or space.

Skill level: Easy

Gauge: 10 double crochet stitches x 5 rounds approximately 2 inches (with materials indicated)

      fpdc means front post double crochet. You can check the crochet abbreviations, just click on it 🙂

      Hi Linda,
      I got it from a local yarn store. If you can’t find coated cotton yarn online just use waxed cotton yarn or raffia yarn instead.

    • Maz Kwok says:

      The brim will stay stiff when you use coated or waxed yarn/ cord. These are ideal for crocheting bags and hats.
