Brimmed Crocheted Hat

Designed by Yine Hing

Description:  This wide-brimmed hat is crocheted with a small hook to produce a dense fabric.  Mold the brim down for a comfortable gardening hat, or curl up the side edges for a Western look.  You can make a taller hat by working the even sc rounds for longer than 3", and you can also make a shorter brim by stopping when brim reaches desired width.  Size is determined by hook size.

 

Level:  Easy-Intermediate (sc, increasing and dense crochet)

 

Size:  S (M, L, XL)

 

Materials: 

Gauge: 

Note:  The larger-sized hats will be slightly looser than the smaller-sized hats.

 

Abbreviations:  beg- beginning; ch- chain; rem- remaining; rep- repeat; rnd- round; sc- single crochet; sl st- slip stitch
