I rushed to get this one done because the ☀️ is here for the #summer!! This is made with #raffia and comes together in a day. Time to make something for yourself now… ????! My #Crochet #Floopy #Sun #Hat is fairly simple to make once you get used to working with raffia. I’ll be honest, it took me a bit longer than expected to get comfortable with the paper texture and find a way to wrap it around my fingers easily. But stick with it, it’s so worth every minute!
- 3.5mm crochet hook
- 2 balls of Raffia (I used this “yarn” in natural)
This hat is worked in the round starting from the top down and always in the back of each stitch.
Side note: Yashi is an unusual yarn which has lots of possibilities. It takes its inspiration from the Japanese art of paper folding, and has a durable, papery texture. Made of raffia and harvested from Raffia palm trees in Africa, this yarn will be ideal for making bags, hats, and home textiles.
Rnd 1: Start with a magic loop and working 7 SC in the in the middle. Join with a slip stitch.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, 2 SC in each SC (14 sts)
Rnd 3: 2 SC st in each of the previous round’s 2 SC, SC in every stitch otherwise. You will be increasing 7 sts every round.
Repeat Rnd 3 until the diameter is 8in (22in circumference) Should be around 84 sts/12 rows. Place stitch marker
Next: Work rounds in SC (no longer increasing) until body from stitch marker is 4in
Rnd 1: *Work 2 SC in the front of the next st, then SC in next stitch (1 st made over 2 stitches)*, repeat around (126)
Rnd 2: SC around in back stitch
Rnd 3:*Work 2 SC in the back of the next st, then SC in next two stitches (1 st made over 3 stitches)*, repeat around (168)
Rnd 4-6: SC around in back stitch
Rnd 7-8: HDC in back of the next stitch, *ch 1, sk 1, HDC* repeat around
Rnd 8-9: SC around in back stitch
Rnd 10-11: HDC in back of the next stitch, *ch 1, sk 1, HDC* repeat around
Rnd 12: SC around in back stitch
Bind off, weave in ends.
