The beginner wide brim sun hat free crochet patterns by jennyandteddy

Friends, it’s hot. Really hot. Summer is here and April, being the hottest month in Thailand, has been sweltering. So, what’s a crocheting girl to do? Make a wide brim crochet sun hat, of course!

I love, love, love mine and thought you all might enjoy the pattern too.

As always, the pattern was created with beginners in mind, so don’t worry if you don’t have a lot of crochet experience. You’ll be able to whip this up in no time!

Since I actually wanted the brim of the hat to have some shape, I used a worsted weight or acrylic yarn in the sun hat crochet pattern.

I also recommend holding double the yarn while crocheting. That means you’ll need two skeins and be holding the yarn from each skein at the same time.

This added thickness allows the brim to be wide without being too floppy. After all, I wanted the hat to shield the sun, not cover my eyes!

You can make the hat in any color, but if you plan on going out in the sun a lot, choose a lighter color so that it absorbs less heat.

I added a super easy crochet pinwheel flower to the hat to dress it up, but you could add an applique heart or even an easy shell pattern band if you wanted to.

You can find the pattern for the pinwheel crochet flower in my previous post, the 5 minutes crochet heart pattern here, and the easy whale crochet applique here. There are a ton of different options!

If you’re thinking that the sun hat pattern might be too challenging, don’t worry. I don’t like complicated patterns either, so all of my crochet patterns are easy to do. This one makes a great addition to your summer wardrobe! I hope you enjoy the new pattern!

    Would you tell me exactly what kind of yarn you used? I’d love to try to make this hat, and .I want to make sure the yarn I pick out will work. Thank you!

  2. Hello, I’d like to print the pattern for the chicken hat with long curly ties. Could you help me get to this pattern. It is so adorable. Thank you

  3. HI joann,
    I am used weight worsted yarn or acrylic 100% 8 ply 100g. I think any acrylic yarn will do just hold then 2 strands while crochet and 3.5 mm hook this will make the brim not too floppy.

  4. Hi Im using cotton a lot in knitting for summer, would the hat be ok with this yarn too its just the hat looking for

  5. Hi Jan,

  8. Thanks so much Judy, I am glad you love it.

  9. Is it two strands for the entire hat or just the brim portion?

  10. HI Bev,
    Holding 2 strands for the entire hat.
    thanks

  11. I love this hat pattern! One question though…it’s 66 sc stitches in the first color for all of rows 12-30? I’m confused about the distinction from rows 28-30…

  12. Hello Amnity, thanks for asking it good question,
    round1-28 is white colour or main color
    round 29-30 is blue

  13. This pattern looks so cute, was wondering if it would be too big for girls aged 9 and 6

  14. this sun hat can adjust the size easily by when u finished round 7 then u can jump to round 12. or round 6 then u can jump to round 12.
    basic just decrease round to make the hat body smaller or increase round to make it bigger hope this help.
