how do you do your V stitch? Are you using sc or dc? how many stitches and chain? sorry, I live in Australia and stitches are a bit different and I find V stitches can vary. thankyou so much. I really want to do this hat. it's gorgeous.

This is another cute sun hat. Summer is right around the corner and I need to make a couple hats. I am very fair and need to wear one in the sun. Why buy one when you can make one. The instructions look easy to follow and it should work up quickly. Thank you for the pattern.

For a supposedly vintage hat, this looks remarkably modern to me! This designer always posts interesting patterns, but I do wish there were more photos of her projects. From the angle of the top photo, I was hoping that the back of the hat was flat rather than worked like the front (think sort of a bonnet). But reading through the instructions, its worked all the same.

This Vintage sun hat is darling. I like the open weave design. That will allow air flow which is important on hot summer days. No directions on blocking or adding stiffner. I guess neither one is necessary for this hat.

I'm having trouble with the step 9 directions. My V stitches are not lining up directly with the ch2 spaces. What am I doing wrong?

Here is what I noticed so far. I hope it helps. On round 9 There are no instructions for the v stitch, so I assume it is the typical dc, ch 1, dc v-st. The skip next sc is missing from before and after sc in next 3 sts. On round 10, your last sc is made in the center sl st.

This vintage sun hat pattern is cute. The brim of the hat is kind of stingy. Does it really offer a lot of coverage while out in the sun? Wondering if using a cotton blend would be a different alternative for ease of wear in the heat of the day.

Perfect for a day in the sun at the beach or just hanging outside at home. The vintage sun hat is a great hat to keep the sun out of your eyes and off of your face to help protect your delicate face from the damaging rays of the sun. No one want to get the C or premature wrinkling.

Nice pattern but, pattern cannot be printed unless you purchase a PDF from designer. Needless to say, that is not a "free" pattern.

Hi Renie, If you click the link above, the pattern text is right there, available in full. You don't have to pay to see it. If you want to print it, you can just right click and select print and it prints with no issue. Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

I really like this Vintage Sun Hat pattern. After reading the written pattern I can see this one coming out nicely. As JaneEK said below, this doesn't seem to be a Intermediate pattern, which could turn people off from trying this pattern. The stitches are easy and if the pattern is followed, it will work. I'm looking forward to making this sun hat with a good size brim. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

This is a very pretty hat, and worked up in cotton, would be ideal for summer. The brim is nice and wide to protect the face. This particular project is the adult version of this hat (a childs size is also available). Even though the designer states this is for Intermediate crafters, there arent any tricky stitches in the pattern. The pattern is well written and nicely formatted but no photos.
