I am in australia and I would like to crochet a sun hat but dont know what yarn is equivalent to your lily sugar and cream I would appreciate your help I love your site but matching yarns is a big problem for me I wish there was a chart like in needles and hooks to help to get the nearest options thank you Josie Hughes.

Just what I was looking for to crochet. Why buy a hat when I can enjoy making one in my own colours, add my own embellishements etc. Grateful for the free pattern. I'm just learning to write patterns.

If the hat comes out too big using the size F hook, you might want to use a smaller hook, like an E or a D, but then also you might want to use a different textured cotton yarn as well or use another cotton thread like size 10 cotton yarn instead of the Sugar and Cream. It is somewhat smaller and would make the hat come out lighter than this. Just a suggestion.

I just finished this hat for my trip to Charleston this Summer and I love the way it turned out! I added more rows to the brim to make it even bigger to keep the sun off of my face. I did cheat a bit and used some white florist wire to keep the brim up. I even crocheted a pretty flower and attached it to the side. Row 15 was different, but if you read it slowly and actually do what it says word for word, it does work out. I never count stitches that carefully, so if it had 86 instead of 88, it didn't matter to me or the design of the hat. My suggestion to anyone who thinks the hat got too big around for their head would be to weave elastic around the cap between the stitches.

Made this hat. Did everything accrding to pattern. It is huge!!!!!!! For a giant. You can't even wear it. I'm ripping it all out. And by the way, row 15 was not easy to figure out. I just went to youtube, but it still wasn't that helpful. I figured it out, but it's not my favorite stitch. I can't believe how big this hat came out. It's so disappointing. Looks like an appliance cover.

Will someone explain how to cross double crochet over three double crotchets in Row 15? Maybe if can get that row right, Rows 16 and 17 will come out rignt

I had several balls of yarn that I made from old tee shirts and am using that to make the hat. This is my first crochet project more complex than doilies or edging on a knitted top, and I am very pleased at the progress. Thanks so much for posting this pattern!

I made this hat for our Senior Citizens Group to give to cancer papers and they adored it! Thank you!

I am stumped on row 15, I do what I think is right and then row 16 doesn't come out right (88 stitches), Can anyone help me on this "crossed double stitch"?
