Jade Sun Hat: Quick And Easy Crochet Pattern In Four Sizes
"The Jade Sun Hat is a quick and easy style using basic crochet stitches and simple repeats that create a lot of interesting fabric texture! This sun hat is made with simple stitches to quickly create a gorgeous fabric that is really fun to crochet. The pattern is worked in joined rounds from the top down using chains, single, and double crochet stitches. Follow the pattern instructions to create one of four popular hat sizes: 18 (20, 22, 24)”. While you can easily substitute yarn for this project, I really enjoyed working with Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton to give this style the perfect weight and brim. 24/7 Cotton is a sturdy yarn with a nice weight to it, so the fabric it creates is perfect for this brim style. If you choose to substitute yarn, think about the fabric you’re creating and be careful not to create fabric that is too stiff (unless you’re totally into that kind of style, of course)! The Jade Sun Hat is a great pattern because: This top-down hat is worked with simple stitches and stitch repeats. You can easily substitute yarn fibers and colors to make this your own style! You’ll get to practice a lot of crochet skills: working in joined rounds, increasing, gauge & size, finishing techniques & more! "
