Sun Flower Hat - Free Crochet Pattern

Sun Flower Hat by Dana White - Everyday Handmade - Made for Patty G's Twin Baby Girls I can't wait to see.

Hat

You can use any basic hat pattern you like. This is my go to pattern I picked up over the years. I never figure out gauge, I just crochet, and if it looks too big or too small, I start again. Always someone I can give a hat too.


Round 1: Start with a Magic Ring. Double Crochet [DC] 8 times into the center of this ring. Pull tight, Slip Stitch [SS] into first DC, place a stitch marker here. Chain 1.
Round 2: DC into the same stitch, 2 DC into each stitch all the way around. SS into first DC move stitch marker. Chain 1 [16 stitches]
Round 3: DC into the same stitch, 1 DC in next stitch, (2 DC in next stitch, 1 DC in next stitch) repeat around. SS in first DC, move stitch marker. Chain 1 [24 stitches]
Round 4: DC into the same stitch, 1 DC in the next 2 stitches, (2 DC in next stitch, 1 DC in next two stitches) repeat around. SS in first DC, move stitch marker. Chain 1 [32 stitches]
Round 5: DC into the same stitch, 1 DC in the next 3 stitches, (2 DC in next stitch, 1 DC in next three stitches) repeat around. SS in first DC, move stitch marker. Chain 1 [40 stitches]
Round 6: DC into the same stitch, 1 DC in the next 4 stitches, (2 DC in next stitch, 1 DC in next four stitches) repeat around. SS in first DC, move stitch marker. Chain 1 [48 stitches]
Round 7-12: DC into each stitch all the way around. SS into first DC, move stitch marker. Chain 1 [48 stitches] Last row fasten off. Weave in ends.


Sunflower

I was inspired by this pattern from CoatsCraft. No specific gauge is needed. I used an acrylic yarn for the center, and a cotton yarn for the petals. The cotton gives the petals a little more structure.


BROWN YARN - CENTER of FLOWER:
Chain two
Round 1: 6 Single Crochets [SC] into the first chain, SS into the first SC to complete. Place a stitch marker here. Chain one to bring you up to next round. 6 stitches
Round 2: SC into the same stitch and 2 SC in each stitch all the way around, until you get to the end of round, and finish with a slip stitch, move your stitch marker here. 12 stitches.
Round 3: 1 SC in the same stitch and 1 SC in the next stitch (2 SC in next stitch, 1 SC in next stitch) repeat to end of round, finish with a slip stitch, and fasten off, leave long tail to sew into hat. 18 stitches.


YELLOW YARN - PETALS:
Round 4: Attach yellow yarn with a single crochet, (chain 9, SC in 2nd chain from hook, HDC in next chain, DC in next chain, 1 TR into each of the next 2 chains, DC in next chain, HDC in next chain, SC in in the last chain, and SS into the first SC that started this petal. SC in next brown SC) repeat 17 more times. (on last petal, SS into the first petal you created and fasten off) You will have 18 petals when finished. Leave long tail to sew into hat.


Leaf


Chain 12, SS into 2nd chain from the hook, and in all chains. Chain 1 and turn.


HDC in first stitch, DC in next two stitches, TR in next three stitches, DC in next Two Stitches, HDC in next two stitches, SC in next stitch, SS in next stitch, chain 2, [turn and go back down other side of or original chain] SS in first stitch, SC in next stitch, HDC in next two stitches, DC in next two stitches, TR in next three stitches, DC in next two stitches, HDC in last stitch, and fasten off. Leave long tail to sew into hat.

I wrote this pattern up from memory, as I gave the hats as gifts this weekend. So if you see an errors in my written pattern, let me know and I'll update the pattern as needed.
