Brimmed 'Straw' Hat

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton

GAUGE:

3 sc = 1 inches. Motifs are approx, 2¾ inches across. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

HAT BAND:
Motif (make 8):
Ch 4, join with sl st into ring. Work 8 sc into ring, sl st to join. Next rnd: Ch 3, yo and insert hook into same space, yo, pull loop through, yo, pull through 1 loop, yo, pull through 2 loops, yo, pull through rem 2 loops (first petal made). *Ch 3, yo and insert hook into next sc, pull loop through, yo, pull through 1 loop, yo, pull through 2 loops (2 loops rem on hook), yo and insert into same sc, pull loop through, yo, pull through 1 loop, yo, pull through 2 loop, yo pull through rem 3 loops on hook (petal made); rep from * 6 more times -- 8 petals made counting First Petal. Ch 3 and join with sl st top top of first petal. Fasten off.

Assemble Hat Band: Sl st motifs tog by placing right sides tog, sl st 2 ch-3 spaces tog, sl st across one motif to next ch-3 space, sl st 2 motifs tog at ch-3 space, sl st across to next ch-3 space, sl st tog at ch-3 space. Leave one ch-3 space free at top and bottom of each motif. Join 8 motifs into long narrow hat band in this manner. (Or, motifs may be sewn tog at same positions.)

Sl st back seam of hat band and with RS facing, work 72 sc around bottom of hat band (9 sts across each motif as described above). Work 4 rnds even in sc.

Brimmed 'Straw' Hat Reviewed by Teresa jDonohue on 2012-06-06 ****
I just finished making this cute hat and am starting a second one. I plan on donating it as a chemo cap. Also am thinking of making one for myself for when we go to the beach. It will roll up nicely in the suitcase and comes out without a wrinkle.
