 I love this easy crochet sunhat hat pattern. great for a toddler. As it sits nice and snug around the head yet the fluted brim will help to keep the sun's rays away. 
SO soft  I used a lightweight cotton and size 4.0  hook
Hat with flower is worked in half double crochet
The hat measures about 16 inches in circumference around the baby's head and 17.5 inches, around the bottom circumference of the hat. Which gives it that delightful fluted bucket hat look. 
Finish off with some ribbon or as I have done a lovely little Crochet FLower
This Pattern was one I wrote way back in the beginning! 
SO this has now been re-worked revised and re-written.

Whilst I do not claim to be a professional crochet designer I am a crochet hobbyist and addict, crochet is my passion. I love to experiment and come up with crochet designs, that I posted on my Facebook Page, which then got shared around, thus leading to people contacting me and asking to help them or if I have a pattern for them. I spent more time via emails and face book answering questions about my work, I decided to create this blog to help inspire and help others to create beautiful crocheted pieces of work. So sometimes the patterns will be written as how I have made and understood and interpreted them. Sometimes I may even make something, not take notes and need to go back and work out what i did. 
As Always I welcome any constructive feedback.
