'Floppy Flower Sun Hat' Downloadable Crochet Pattern
Here's a new pattern for your summer crochet list! Floppy Flower Sun Hat is the happiest hat pattern that ever was...
It features a shallow cap, designed to gently balance on the crown of your head, and a generous 15.5" (39 cm) foldable, poseable brim.
Use up the scraps in your stash to make the chic-est chapeau in the land! You'll need one for every outfit...
Level: Intermediate. To complete this project you must be able to to read a chart or a pattern, maintain even tension, and stitch confidently into starting chains.
Additionally, the pattern requires some attention during the cap portion (Rows 1&2). Match my gauge or adapt as you go to get the perfect fit. I packed the sizing instructions with all the wisdom we gained during the test and included ways to modify the pattern if you're coming up too small in Row 2.
My testers, picked from a broad range of crochet experience, had no trouble adapting the pattern to their various noggins. But we had each other for confidence, so if you're a beginner who wants to learn Ribbon Candy Crochet, try my Scarf Book first.
This Digital Crochet Pattern has all the instructions you need to create magnificent Floppy Flower Sun Hats of your own. Includes written English Instructions with ample Charts, Diagrams and Photos for support.
