Crochet Sun Hat Free Pattern, Lady Jane Sun Hat

Share the Love!

This crochet sun hat free pattern has a vintage charm. Don’t you think? Tying the scarf around your hat is totally optional.

 

 

 

When I first planned to make this hat, I was thinking of adding wire to the brim. I finished the hat and found that the brim was standing on its own, yay!

 

 

I wanted to make a sun hat that looked like a straw hat but I didn’t want to use Jute as it would hurt your hands. Then I found this Jute color yarn from Lily Sugar ‘n Cream online. I was super excited to try it as it looked so much like jute, agree?

Wide Brim for your Crochet Sun Hat

Pattern Notes

1.Switch back to the smaller hook. You want to work your brim with a tight gauge to make it stiff.

 

2. Round 1 is worked into the sl sts stuck on the surface. Insert your hook only under the 2 loops of the sl st and not into the sc sts behind.

 

3. The increases on the brim have been staggered to avoid the brim taking a hexagon shape.

    The Sun Hat looks great and the directions are clear. I’ve completed a similar hat for an American Girl doll. Made up the pattern. Lots of trial and error to get the brim. I did it in half-double stitch. I like that there’s texture to your pattern. I’ll give it a try soon. Thank you for your pattern! Happy warmer days to you!

    Hello, looking forwarded to reconnecting with crochet after a few years. I am a little rusty still and wondered if you have a video along with the pattern.
    Kind regards,
    Claire

    I am not coming up with 86 SC on round 14. I have tried several times and only come up with 85. What am I doingg wrong?

      I checked again and it does add up to 86. Check where you are missing 2sc or just add one extra in a st and continue to the next round.

    I made this and it turned out BEAUTIFULLY! I was concerned because other patterns had called for things such as fishing line, wire, and strange types of yarn that I could not find, but the hat was gorgeous! Pattern worked very nicely. I only got confused at one point and that was because I followed to pattern wrong. The brim even stays out and doesn’t fall down!! Thank you!!

      Hi Abigail, I was also pleasantly surprised that the brim holds its shape. Glad you enjoyed the pattern.
