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

This was so easy to make up. I used starch on it and ran a ribbon around the last row before starting the brim. It's adorable and stands up. Now, of course, all of my friends would like one. Thank goodness it's such an easy one to make ! Thank you for sharing this pattern.

great pattern. I used a couple less rows for the brim which gave it a nice wave look. It might be a little big for someone with a smaller head so size it down correctly.

I made this for my recent trip to Thailand and, believe me, it got plenty of use. Using worsted weight cotton, it works up quickly , is very comfortable and washes beautifully.

I made one of these in all white for a Bahamas vacation. I was almost done with the second, too. Yes the brim is floppy, but it hides wilting hair! I also put the front brim up and secured it with a long bamboo "toothpick" used to hold a wrap together. You could use a decorative chopstick if it's not too long. I'm making these and matching totes for Christmas presents!

barrity, I know I'm nosy, but why would you want to pay for the pattern when it is free to use?

@RubyNell: Akala No. 4 is a line of crochet yarn from Phildar that has been discontinued. You may substitute a worsted weight cotton yarn for Akala No. 4. Hope this helps! -- Editor of AllFreeCrochet

Is Akala n.4 a brand or a color of crochet thread? What does it compare to in size?

I made wedding hats in a similar pattern. I used starch on the whole hat and a wire worked in last row on brim for stability. The last row with wire can be made to look like ripples by bending it.

Regarding flimsyness (is that a word?) try using a smaller hook. It may then need one or two more rounds in the top. Works for me!

This pattern is adorable and looks cool for hot weather. If it seems a bit too flimsy, crochet it with cotton yarn and then dip it in a strong solution of starch and water. Dry it partially and shape it on a cap/wig form. Let it dry thoroughly, and it will be sort of like the starched vintage doilies some of us remember.

like the hat, but it came out too flimsy...Is there something I should use to make the brim firm instead of it looking like a ruffle around the hat. Please advise what to do...thanks

I like the hat, but it's can I make the brim more firm? It does look like a ruffle around the hat. Please advise whan to do...thanks

to lgrays5 6262508 I don't believe everybody likes everything. If you don't find items you like, go where you will. Most of us find a treasure of great projects here. Don't be so negative. Your opinion is only a grain of salt in an ocean. Enjoy what you have.

Thank you for posting this pattern! :-)

Gosh, I hate to be so negative and bash this pattern -- but can't we come up with something better than this? This pattern is what gives crochet a frumpy reputation. Its so ho-hum, seen it a million times, buy it cheap at a back yard craft fair. I see lots of first class patterns on Etsy, couldn't we see that caliber on this site too? They probably are not any harder to make.

Hi! I highlighted the instruction pages, right clicked & "Printed Selection!" Now, off to crochet!!!!

I have crocheted the hat and I am very pleased with it. Should I now be washing, starching and pressing it to make the brim a bit stiffer, for it is very floppy like a ruffle at the moment? If so, could someone please tell me what kind of starch I should be using. Thank you so much. Liz

I have the same problem - only 1 page will print. Can't download as a complete PDF ,either. Something's wrong!

I loved the crochet hat. I would like to buy the pattern from you if possible. I made a small change to the hat. On the 15th row I did a db crochet, then a space, and continue like that the whole row. This leaves spaces so you can weave a scarf though the spaces and it looks so nice. Please let me know if I can buy the pattern.

If you're having trouble printing straight from the project page, I would suggest copying and pasting the instructions into a separate word document and printing from there. Thanks! Editor

Thank you, Marian (6266036). I have been to the blogspot, but can't seem to find a way to leave a message? Kind regards Liz

@ lizroberts 8398008: If you're looking for recommendations on yarn substitution, you might want to contact the designer of the pattern at Cloudy Crochet: Hope this helps! -- Editors of AllFreeCrochet

I love the hat. Could you please tell me what United Kindom yarn I could use as an equivalent. Thank you. Liz

I have found that when my printer "prints" only blank pages, it is because I have tried to print just a couple of the pages in the document (i.e. pages 2-4 of 6 pages). When I tell my printer to print "all" or "current page" it prints just fine. This means that I must tell it to print "current page" more than once (the number of pages I want actually printed); but at least I no longer get blank pages. Hope this helps each of you.

I am tired of trying to print patterns only to get blank paper. I have tried everything I know in order to correct this but nothing helps. If anyone knows what to do other than print preview or setup, let me know. I have lost many great patterns because I could not get anything other than the first page to print.

I can't get this pattern to print all of it.
