Nothing is more cuter than the little one in their sun hat. and your possibilities in colour and finishing off are endless.
 
I used 4.0mm UK hook and Double Knit Yarn. Light Worsted,  or as Martha has used in the pretty hat seen below Schachenmayr Catania Cotton (fingering weight)
Finish off these hats with some matching ribbon or a crochet flower as seen.
 
Please Note:
Ch2, does not count as first stitch, you will be working the first dc into the base of the ch2, in each round)
The main part of the hat is crocheted loosely (5dc=1 inch)
When you start the brim (RND 17) crochet this tighter in the first couple  of rounds or change to a 3.50mm hook for the next 3 rounds if you want the brim stiffer
