It is summer here and all the more reasons for the little girls to go out in pretty panama hats!
I know I said, I’ll never crochet for anyone who asks me for a hat but, what if you are four years old? Beaten by a very pretty four year old and her gorgeous big brown eyes! My husband’s niece. She has been staying with us this week and although the whole house was busy with five little kids running about, I did get time to finish this.
This is a very simple hat. If she was 9 or 10 years old, I would have taught it to her. The yarn is that same Bamboo yarn I had used to make Candy Swirl and the edging is made of crochet cotton in size 3mm hook. There are no fancy stitches you need and it finishes off in just a few hours if you have the time.
|The hat itself is made of rows of 3chain stitches joined by single crochet into a ring. I didn’t increase rows. I just went round and round trying to stay in shape and then slipped stitch when I had had enough.|
|The edge is all made of single crochet with reverse single crochet to finish it off|
|The flower is a simple disk of 16dc (in a magic ring) with ruffles made of 3chains joined by slip stitch. The pearl was attached and the flower sits on some lace strewn about.|
|My toddler liked it so much that she wants one just like it!
Aww baby… I finished that yarn!
