This sun hat is made with cotton crochet thread and is lightweight, cool for warm summer weather. The body of the hat is made with single string and the band and brim of the hat are made with double strings. This pattern will fit most babies 9-12 months.

Please note, this is one of the first patterns I ever wrote. It does not have gauge, however you can make this hat to fit any size using my How to Design Your Own Custom Crochet Hat post HERE. I also wish I had better images, though I may remake this hat someday and get some new photos.
