Sunhat with Large Brim made from Granny Squares (aka The Katy Perry Crochet Bucket Hat)

 This is a free-written crochet pattern based on the picture of Katy Perry Wearing a Fabulous Crochet hat made from Crochet Granny Squares.

This is how I made the beautiful crochet bucket hat that Katy Perry was wearing. 

The Hat shown HERE is made with a 4.00mm hook and is HUGE but I wanted to show you clearly how to crochet the squares, as you will not work INTO the stitches themselves, you WILL work INTO the space between 2 stitch posts.

 Just like everyone we read about Katy Perry taking her family to the circus and then stopping off at a restaurant for something to eat and her encounter as being treated like a normal person in a restaurant. GO you, waiter person! 

But what struck us Crafty people IS THE HAT she was wearing!. Crochet, a Flower Center Granny Square HAT!

 And although I have a Granny Square HAT pattern already. This crochet flower hat was made with the hat band also made of the Granny Squares. 

I considered using the Daisy flower crochet granny square but I thought it was too small.

Then my sister-in-law sent me the picture and just said 'one for you' as I admit I LOVE a challenge and no one could appear to find an actual crochet pattern 

It was from Etsy and you can view it here 

This hat is ONLY available to BUY from ETSY 

Since this is a 'made-up version' I have no idea where Katy Perry Bought her hat, nor what materials were used to make it, IF ANYONE knows the origin of the hat can you shout out to me and I shall give credit for inspo. 

Please Note: I will provide the pattern for free on my website, (with ADS) to compensate for my time. In dissecting the pattern. 

Back to the Granny Flower Square Crochet Hat, Katy was wearing. It was just too cute NOT to try to dissect the pattern and recreate it.

I am currently housebound with sun-sensitive antibiotics so I'm gonna LOVE wearing this crochet sunhat made from Granny Sqaures as it has a large brim made from squares all around to add super protection from the sun.

Crocheting the Granny Squares. 

This written bucket hat pattern will fit medium/ large adult-sized heads 

IF you need to make these fit around your head when joined, so I made my squares 4.5 inches wide. (to fit 22 inches around) 

(we will add a couple of rows to the length once they are joined before adding to the brim)

We will make the squares FIRST so that we can make sure the top of the hat is going to fit evenly  AROUND  (so the 5 squares joined together Will total your AROUND head circumference (and a little bit of ease will be added when joining them together into a circle) 

The Brim Looks to have more squares so they sit just off center of each other in the round when joined, so that will mean NINE (9)  for the Brim so that means I will need to make 14 squares in TOTAL! One individual piece worked in the round for the top. 

I tried to find a Granny Square that looked like this online to make the process easier. But you all know my luck I couldn't find any anywhere so Off to the drawing book I went.  

I prefer not starting with the magic circle and like to chain a few stitches, and work into the FIRST chain made, then once the round is finished pull tight. 

The Crochet Flower Granny Square for Katy Perrys Hat.

I used a 4.5mm hook for the Mid Ring Squares and went down to a 
3.50 mm hook for the BRIM and used a standard double-knit yarn. however, 
I think this hat should be made of cotton I just didn't have any at the time of making it. 

I am an extremely loose crocheter so please adjust your hook and tension to ensure your finished squares (including the GREEN ) measure 4.5 inches across when finished BEFORE joining) 

Make 5 in TOTAL  (for the Hats middle BAND) 

US terms used in the pattern 

trc - Treble crochet

NOTE: you will be working INTO the space between the stitches (between the POSTS of previous rounds of stitches) 

I used a double-knit yarn but this would look amazing in cotton! Let me see your creations with the square #lisaauchcrochet 

Rnd1: Ch 5 (also counts as FIRST treble crochet )  to start  (counts as the FIRST trc) and work  15 Treble crochets into the first chain from the hook. 

(or Magic circle and work 16 Treble crochet INTO the MCircle (16sts) 

Fasten off and weave in ends

(JOin new yarn in any space in between the posts of any stitches of the previous round)

Rnd 2: chain 4 (counts as first trc) and make 3 further Treble crochet stitches Into the same space = 4Trc in one space), skip 2 trc POSTS from previous round, and work 4 trc into space, * ch3 (corner made) skip 2 posts of previous rounds, and into the space between posts, work 4 trc, SKIP 2 posts and work into that space between the posts, 4 treble crochet, * repeat around, finishing with a ch4, and slip stitch to join

You will have (4 x ch4 corners, and 2 sets of 4trc on each side)

now your squares are completed. I will use 5 squares for the middle joined together, into a circle.
 

Then make a  further 9 Squares for the brim, 
NOTE: the 9 BRIM squares will have a SLIGHT variation on the LAST rows

BRIM SQUARE (work as for Middle squares to Round 2)

IN the SAME COLOUR as round 2 

Rnd 3: Work  as before BUT  in the Next 2 corners work (3trc, chain 3, 3trc, ) 

Round 4: work at before but work into the 2 chains 3 corners (3sc, ch2, 3) 

On 2 opposite sides change color join yarn in between any st and work sc to the next corner. Fasten off 

Repeat square instructions  until you have 9 squares

I will also be adding in a further few rounds to the hat, (on the middle circles to make it deeper just before adding the brim. I prefer to over-sew the pieces together giving it a nicer neater finish. 
 
For the BRIM SQUARES (make 9) for the hat Katy Perry is wearing,  the color combo has just been changed, to the SAME color for RND 3 and RND 4, then the purple for the single crochet rounds.
