Derby Sunhat - Crochet
The Derby Sunhat is a simple yet striking crochet hat to create in the colour of you preference. I have provided a few alternates for the yarn choices. The Derby Sunhat is a wonderful base for a Easter Bonnet or is perfect for a spring or summar day out. My daughter has love wearing this hat in the backgarden for picnics during lockdopwn last summer.
There are instructions to increase the crown and height of the hat, along with details of how to incorporate floral wire to strengthe the brim. Allowing for a jaunty flair when wearing the hat.
The pattern is written is US terms.
