[** Latest update – July 11, 2011: I have edited the brim pattern of the yoyo-puff hat to a simplified version and added a few images to further explain the details. I hope with this new info, it helps to explain the pattern more clearly.]
[Update- June 29, 2011: I know many of you are confused and had a hard time on the hat brim pattern section. I am in the process of modifying the pattern so that it is easier to understand. Please check back in a week or 2. Thanks!]
I have done 2 halterneck tops (knitted and crochet) for my daughter and now I challenged myself to design and crochet this Yoyo Puff Wide Brim Hat. Do you like it? She likes it a lot… basically, she likes all the things I made, lol….
I would say that it is a perfect hat for spring and summer. Look at the cavities between the yo-yo puffs, it makes the hat airy so you head won’t get cooked by the heat captured in the hat during summer. The wide brim is just nice to block away a certain degree of sunlight. And, I used the 100% cotton yarns left over from the granny square haltered neck top (the one she is wearing), love the colors!!!!
You can also decorate the Yoyo Puff Wide Brim Hat by pinning a brooch or corsage at the brim area.
If you are an advanced level crocheter, you can always modify the Yoyo Puff Wide Brim Hat pattern and make a bigger version for adult, like adding another yo for the yo-yo puff and increase the stitches to the brim accordingly.
