Yoyo Puff Wide Brim Hat Crochet Pattern

I have done 2 halterneck tops (knitted and crochet) for my daughter and now I challenged myself to design and crochet this Yo-Yo Puff Hat with a wide brim to protect her from the sunbeam. Do you like it? 

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 your 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 leftover from the granny square haltered neck top (the one she is wearing), love the colors!!!!

You can also decorate the Yo-Yo 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 Yo-Yo Puff Wide Brim Hat pattern and make a bigger version for adults, like adding another yo for the yo-yo puff and increase the stitches to the brim accordingly.

This is the crochet chart of the basic woven stitch pattern and the typical pattern for increment stitch. It is in a continuous round, no turning needed.
The written pattern of woven stitch:
rnd 2: ch1, *sc1, ch1, skip 1 st of previous round* repeat till the end, ending with ch, slst to the 1st ch.
rnd 3: ch1, *skip 1 st of the previous round, ch1, sc1* repeat till the end, ending with sc, slst to the 1st ch.
repeat round 2 and 3.
When pattern asks for increment: crochet a set of “sc, ch, sc” on the ch stitch of the previous rnd.
