Materials You'll Need
- Lightweight yarn in your desired color
- Crochet hook in size G or H
- Tapestry needle
Step 1: Make a Magic Ring
Start by making a magic ring with your yarn. To do this, create a loop with the yarn, leaving a tail of a few inches. Hold the loop with your fingers and insert your hook into the center of the loop. Yarn over and pull up a loop, then yarn over again and pull through the loop on your hook. This completes the first single crochet
stitch of the ring.Continue making single crochet stitches into the center of the ring until you have the desired number. For a small hat, you might want to use 6-8 stitches, while a larger hat might require 10-12 stitches.
Step 2: Work in the Round
Once you've completed your magic ring, you'll need to join the first and last stitch together to form a circle. To do this, insert your hook into the first stitch you made and slip stitch into the next stitch. This connects the stitches and creates a round.
Next, chain 1 and make a single crochet stitch into each stitch around the circle. Continue working in this way until the hat is the desired length.
Step 3: Add a Brim
To add a brim to your summer hat, you can use a variety of crochet stitches. For a simple and easy brim, try working single crochet stitches into the front loop only of the stitches in the last row of your hat. This will create a raised edge and a nice finish to your hat.
Step 4: Finish Off
Once you've completed your brim, it's time to finish off your summer hat. Cut the yarn, leaving a tail of a few inches, and use a tapestry needle to weave the end through the stitches to secure it. Cut off any excess yarn.
