"I rushed to get this one done because the sun is finally here for the #summer!! This is made with #raffia and comes together in a day. Time to make something for yourself now.! This works up from the top down and after a quick iron, it's good to go. Raffia can be a bit difficult to work with but once you get the hang of it you'll breeze through! Feel free to email me with any questions."

This hat just epitomizes Summer for me. Its easy, breezy, simple, broad brimmed, crushable, floppy and about as casual as it comes. This pattern is super easy to follow, and Im really glad that the designer specifically recommends raffia for this project as its under utilized in this country. Go anywhere in the tropics, and youll find many items created with this practical material.

There is a good friend of mine who wears all kinds of sunhats during the summer months, and I am always making crocheted things for her! When I saw this hat, I thought of her. I haven't ever seen true rafia yarn at any stores where I live, so I will probably have to order it online. I think a seafoam green would be beautiful, as well!

Has anyone made this hat yet? I am curious how many stitches are supposed to be in each round after round 2. She says to work 2 SC in each 2 SC of the previous round, but my understanding would be it is still 2 SC in each SC because the previous round all the stitches are doubled. I will have to think about this and try it once I have found Raffia yarn, or a good substitute.

I love the look of this hat. It would be perfect for me since I live in Florida and need to protect my face from the sun as much as possible. I see this hat is worked with Rafia. I have never worked with this type of yarn and wonder if it is necessary or could the same weight cotton would substitute with the same results? Has anyone tried it with anything other than raffia?
