Tips & tricks for crocheting brimmed hats.
Make the brim hold its shape, not too floppy:
1: hold yarn double when crocheting the brim:
Since I actually wanted the brim of the hat to have some shape, I used cotton yarn in the summer hat 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.
2: Switch to a smaller crochet hook when crocheting the brim.
If you are not familiar with holding yarn double when crocheting you can just switch to a smaller crochet hook when crocheting the brim.
Because a smaller crochet hook will make your crochet stitch dent tighter and will make a wide brim to hold its shape beautifully.
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.
If you think that this wide-brimmed 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!
