Sunhat



I do apologize for the Abe Licoln top hat-ness of the picture, but unfortunately I had nothing to model it on but a paper mache robot head.  I promise, it rounds!  

This is an absolutely adorable little sunhat that was written up by my friend Nina.  You can find the pattern for this and other great things she has made at her website here!


I made a few slight changes at the end of her pattern to suit my needs.  Her pattern is for a little girl, so the brim is a bit wavy and feminine.  I made this for a little boy, so to boy it up a bit I made changes to the brim as follows:

Row 16 - Chain 2, Double Crochet in each stitch around, join with slip stitch.
Row 17 - Chain 2, Half Double Crochet in each stitch around, join with slip stitch.
Row 18 - Chain 2, Double Crochet in each stitch around, join with slip stitch.
Row 19 - Chain 1, single crochet in each stitch around, fasten off.

I used bulky weight yarn, hook size 5.5 mm.

Thanks for the great pattern Nina!
