Crochet Hat Pattern With YoYo Puff

crochet summer hat pattern

I have done 2 halter 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 halter 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 Crochet Hat pattern and make a bigger version for adults, like adding another yo for the yo-yo puff and increasing the stitches to the brim accordingly.

Let’s see how many Ravelers are making this crochet hat.

MORE DETAILS ON HOW TO CROCHET YOYO-PUFF WIDE BRIM HAT

  1. The basic pattern for the light blue brim is a woven stitch. The woven stitch pattern is constructed by alternating a chain and single crochet repeatedly (as shown in the close-up photo).
    The written pattern of the woven stitch is as shown below.woven stitch


  2. 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.

I didn't prepare the chart because it will take a lot of time to do as I am not familiar with the software.
