A wide brimmed sun hat is a dramatic show stopper. Worked in a simple stitch, this gorgeous project is accessible to even the beginner crafter. The addition of wire in the brim adds a professional finish to be proudly worn!

18 sts / rows = 4 in (10cm) in half double crochet
18” head circumference, 4” brim
Chain (ch): Wrap the yarn over the hook in a counterclockwise direction. Draw the yarn through to form a new loop without tightening the previous one.
Half Double Crochet (hdc): Yarn over the hook, insert the hook into the work (or second chain from hook), wrap the yarn over the hook and draw the yarn through the work only. Wrap the yarn again and draw it through all three loops.
Slip Stitch (slst): A slip stitch usually joins a round, or both ends of a row of chain stitches. Insert hook into joining stitch. Wrap the yarn over the hook from back to front. Draw the yarn through the stitch and through the loop on the hook.
