6-9 month Sun Hat

With this free pattern, for a size 6-9 month sun hat, I really wanted to show how different the finished product can be. Thank you everyone who tested out my pattern and to Jerri Sparks Photography for taking this beautiful photo. Also a double thanks to the people who sent me pictures. If anyone else would like to submit a picture for this pattern please just post it on my fb page and tell me what, if anything, you did differently. Also, check out the 12-18 month size , toddler size, child, and adult sizes.

Thank you,  Nicole Angelique, so much for testing out my pattern and allowing your beautiful daughter to be our hat model <3 I am so pleased with how well this hat turned out!
She used 4 ply cotton yarn.

With this hat Nicole crocheted with two strands of 2 ply yarn and added a row after row 10 to make it longer. And its perfect!!

Laura used “I love this cotton” spring ombre with a pink organza ribbon

Thank you Laura Lee McGarvey,  from Wearable Art ~ Huggable Friends,  for testing out this pattern! Your work is beautiful!

    Just a question. I’m just learning to crochet and still learning to read patterns (only been doing this about a month) But on number 11. should there be a ch 2 in the beginning?

    Also, This is the first pattern i have read that I actually UNDERSTAND!! I can fully visualize what i”m supposed to be doing and will be making this hat soon :)

    • CorinaCorina says

      Ha! Yes, good call.

      I’m glad you are able to follow it. Finding one easy to read pattern makes a world of difference and makes it easier to read the harder ones after. Would love to see a photo of your work after its finished :)

    Hi there,
    I have attempted your wonderful pattern. I have followed it exact every stitch is exactly the same but my brim is not wavy its near straight out. what could i be doing wrong? I have undone it twice now and followed the pattern again and same outcome.
    Thanks Maddie

    Jammer dat dit patroon van het leuke hoedje niet in het Nederlands is. Ik ben zo slecht in engels. Ik verheug me op een Nederlands patroon. Ik krijg in Oktober zelf een baby, altijd leuk om zo’n hoedje te haken. :)

    • CorinaCorina says

      Im so sorry! Ik wou dat ik wist nederlands anders dan met behulp van Google Translate. Ik zou bieden om te proberen om het te gebruiken om mijn patroon te vertalen maar ik zou flauw idee of het daadwerkelijk correct of niet vertaalt. Congrats op het nieuwe baby! – Stitch 11

    Okay some how this is not working for me. When I get to row 11 I still have 50 count. In row 11 you do hdc in multiples of 3 (2 in the first and then 1 in the next two) 50 does not divide into 50 evenly. I end up doing 16 repeats and then have two stitches left.
    I suspect I am not reading this right but now sure how. Thanks!

    Hi there! I love this pattern and have made several now. What would I need to do in order to make it for 0-3 months?

    • CorinaCorina says

      I don’t believe I have a pattern for 0-3 months, but if you take a basic beanie pattern in that size.. like the Stitch11 “Welcome Home Beanie” you could always add the brim at the desired length the same way you added this brim.

      • Lisa says

        I made this hat for my 6 week old daughter using Red Heart baby yarn and a smaller hook. It’s amazing how a small difference in the hook can make a big difference in the size of the finished product.

        Thank you for this pattern, it is beautiful.
