Crochet Floppy Sun Hat

I rushed to get this one done because the ☀️ is here for the #summer!! This is made with #raffia and comes together in a day. Time to make something for yourself now... 🤗! My #Crochet #Floopy #Sun #Hat is fairly simple to make once you get used to working with raffia. I'll be honest, it took me a bit longer than expected to get comfortable with the paper texture and find a way to wrap it around my fingers easily. But stick with it, it's so worth every minute!




Materials:

3.5mm crochet hook

2 balls of Raffia (I used this "yarn" in natural)

Side note: Yashi is an unusual yarn which has lots of possibilities. It takes its inspiration from the Japanese art of paper folding, and has a durable, papery texture. Made of raffia and harvested from Raffia palm trees in Africa, this yarn will be ideal for making bags, hats, and home textiles.


Notes:

This hat is worked in the round starting from the top down and always in the back of each stitch.


Pattern:


Top:

Rnd 1: Start with a magic loop and working 7 SC in the in the middle. Join with a slip stitch.

Rnd 2: Ch 1, 2 SC in each SC (14 sts)

Rnd 3: 2 SC st in each of the previous round's 2 SC, SC in every stitch otherwise. You will be increasing 7 sts every round.

Repeat Rnd 3 until the diameter is 22in. Should be around 84 sts/12 rows. Place stitch marker

Next: Work rounds in SC (no longer increasing) until body from stitch marker is 4in

Brim:

Rnd 1: *Work 2 SC in the front of the next st, then SC in next stitch (1 st made over 2 stitches)*, repeat around (126)

Rnd 2: SC around in back stitch

Rnd 3:*Work 2 SC in the back of the next st, then SC in next two stitches (1 st made over 3 stitches)*, repeat around (168)

Rnd 4-6: SC around in back stitch

Rnd 7-8: HDC in back of the next stitch, *ch 1, sk 1, HDC* repeat around

Rnd 8-9: SC around in back stitch

Rnd 10-11: HDC in back of the next stitch, *ch 1, sk 1, HDC* repeat around

Rnd 12: SC around in back stitch

Bind off, weave in ends.
