Floppy Shell Brim Sun Hat Free Crochet Pattern

Floppy Shell Brim Sun Hat Crochet Pattern by Crochet For You

This easy beginner friendly sun hat pattern for summer is inspired by the yarn I ordered. I believe the tape yarn is really perfectly great for making sun hats for everyday use so I chose the Lion Brand Rewind yarn to make my own sun hat.

This pattern is

  • beginner friendly
  • easy to follow and
  • great for everyday use when you go out in the summertime.

The body of the hat is worked with single crochet and not joined after each round. The floppy shell Brim gives the hat feminine look and protects your eyes from the sun rays.

Floppy Shell Brim Sun Hat

This is my first time working with Tape yarn. Lion Brand Rewind has more beautiful color options. Lion Brand Rewind is a tape yarn but very soft and fun to work with. This yarn is bulky weight made of 70% polyester and 30% viscose. 


Gauge: 14 sc x 15 rows = 4″ with US H-8, 5mm crochet hook.

Abbreviations

  • ch = chain
  • st = stitch
  • sk = skip
  • FL = front loop
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet
  • * to ; = repeat * to the instructions.

Special stitches

  • sc2tog = [insert hook in next stitch, yo, pull up a loop] 2 times, yo, pull back through all the loops on the hook.
  • V-st = (sc, ch 1, sc) in indicated st.

Notes:

  • Do not join after each round of the body of the hat. Always attach the stitch markers on the first st in each round.
  • The brim part ends with joining to the first st of each round and starts with chain 1.
  • The beginning chain does not count as st.
