My first sun hat \(^ ^)/ I have been wearing this hat pretty much every day. Its great for gardening and wearing outdoors. I kept this pattern very basic and decided to make the brim straight rather than floppy as I originally intended.

*If making a larger size or using different materials & need to work additional increase rounds they would look a follows [2 sc in first st, sc in next 7 st] (54 st)… [2 sc in first st, sc in next 8 st] (60 st)… and so on…
Rounds 8-23: sc in ea st
Continue until you have the correct length to cover your head & before you reach the eye level. (This may be a bit shorter than a normal hat since you do not want the brim to come down past your eyes.)

Continue until the brim is your desired size.
*If you are making a larger brim than mine and need to work additional increase rounds they would look as follows [2 sc in first st, sc in next 5 sts] (168 sts)… [2 sc in first st, sc in next 6 st]… and so on…
sl st to join & fasten in your ends.
Pattern Notes: You can make the brim of your hat any length you prefer. Add additional increase rounds if necessary. You can crochet a wire into the brim of your hat to give it structure and make it stand out on its own. Switching to a smaller size hook is optional. I prefer the brim of the hat to have tighter stitches to give it better structure.
