I like this brimmed hat because it protects the face and eyes area from the sun's harmful rays. Countries that are located near the equator receive a very high amount of UV rays that can really cause serious damage to the skin. Although this 1950s Style Wide-Brimmed Hat is not really that wide-brimmed to be able to shield you from the sun's rays, you may still use something like this as long as you don't stay too long under the sun. I wanted to see a much wider brim for this particular pattern to suit the description.

While the pattern link itself is a bit older and the author clearly states that her earlier attempts at writing a pattern weren't very good, the pattern is still understandable. If you're looking for a simple hat pattern for this upcoming summer, this would work nicely. The sun will be out of your face and the cotton will allow your head to breathe and keep cool.

Oops. Sorry. I did not see the pic of the hat being worn. Disregard my previous comment. Thanks.

I agree with Harvard Gram. Would be nice to see it on a head.

talk about scraping the barrell

This is an old pattern link, and the first words, by the creator of this pattern are: "Its the first one I wrote up and looking back on it I clicked on the pattern Im not sure its that great. If you want to make it please do go ahead but Im kind of embarrassed by it nowadays. I apologise for my poor pattern writing skills." Really? Gosh I think this is one I'll pass on!

I used Peaches and Cream cotton thread and made an adorable baby sun bonnet. Thanks for the pattern!

how does it stay on? I'd like to see it on a head.

How does it stay on? I know that back in the day ('30s, '40s, '50s), when hats were regularly worn, they used hat pins.
