Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Mine came out perfect. Thank you for making the video and pattern.

Mine came out perfect.

I followed the instructions for the straight brim and my brim is still ruffled. On round 2, I chained 3, in next stitch I put 2 dc, in next stitch I put 1 dc and repeated this step until I got all the way around. It is still more ruffled than his picture.

Nice directions, thanks for including the video. Very helpful!

Thank you for this hat Tristan. Pattern was very easy to understand unlike some mean people *Below*, and yes I agree. Wyatt looks more than cute. He looks hot. Love his hair.

Oh my god. Leave Wyatt alone he's just a kid.

I like the hat. Mine came out perfect thanks.

This is a great project. I found it easy and I like the boy wearing the sun hat in the picture. What is his name? Please Tell!!

Um his name is Wyatt.

Well, whoever this boy Wyatt is he is so cute! You should of captured his face.

I started this hat by following the pattern. I chained 3 and slip stiched to first chain. I then watched the video and followed mostly that. For row 5, you dc twice in first stitch and then dc once in next 3 stitches, dc twice in next stitch, then dc once in next 3 stitches. Repeat around and join to top of chain 3 with slip stitch. Row 6 is dc twice in first stitch, dc once in next 4 stitches, dc twice in next stitch, dc once in next 4 stitches. Repeat around and join to top of chain 3 with slip stitch. Row 7 is increase to 5 dc's once between 2 dc if you need a row 7 which I did. I am presently working on the brim of the hat and like how it is turning out. I hope I helped make it clear.

how old are u?

THE WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS DO NOT MATCH THE VIDEO!

The written instructions said to start with ch 3 - the video said 4. Also, instructions for row 3 said to dbl ch in the sl st place but in viedo you went to the next dbl ch. I'm really getting confused by this. Can you tell us which is correct? I would really love to make this hat. And one more question, row 5? all it says is "to desired circumference and should end up with 50 - same goes for row 6. This doesn't tell us the pattern/stiches needed to get to 50, and 60 st in row 6...How is this accomplished? PLEASE ADVISE! thanks

Just keep increasing until the hat measures the circumference of your head.

I can bearly hear Tristan on the instructions on how to crochet this sut hat.

I AGREE. ALSO, THE WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS DO NOT MATCH HIS VIDEO. SO I'M CONFUSED ON WHICH ONE TO FOLLOW.
