Learn how to crochet a Summer Hat that will put everyone to shame. As summer approaches, we're reminded of the wide brimmed hats that take over the beaches as far as the eye can see. Now, you don't have to settle for a store-bought accessory; you can make one at home yourself. With this crochet hat pattern, you just start with a magic circle, and the rest is history! Hats like this are a summer staple everywhere. Don't you deserve a cute hat?

You start with a magic ring and you crochet a circle to a size that you can determine yourself.
Then you stop increasing the circle, so you actually crochet the cloak of the hat.
When the mantle is high enough, start increasing again. I do this in 3 rows. In the first row I increase every 4 stitches, the 2nd row I don’t increase and in the 3rd row I increase every 2 stitches.
Then just work a few more rounds until you find that the brim of the hat is wide enough!
