This is a brimmed hat that can be worn any time of the year. It is very simple to crochet and takes 3.5 oz skein of 4 ply worsted weight yarn, size G/6 crochet hook. You can make it for a child using a size E hook and sport weight yarn.
I got the pattern from www.crochetandknitting.com It uses chain stitch, slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet, and a tapestry needle to weave in ends. Very easy to read directions. I hope you enjoy my slideshow.
