Shine-On-Sun-Hat-By-Jessie-At-Home

Here is a summer sun hat for you to make and enjoy! Keep safe and be fashionable, all at the same time. The slight stretch of the yarn helps keep the hat in place, even in the wind, and gives the brim a lovely look. I named this hat Shine On, as in Shine On You Crazy Diamond (by Pink Floyd) because of the diamonds. A sun hat with diamonds seemed to have no other possible name!

If you would like a DUTCH version of this pattern, Ms Centina Kamphues has been kind enough to provide one Zomerhoed – Shine On Sunhat in Dutch.

Shine-On-Sun-Hat-Brim

Band:
Chain until you have a chain that is 28” long. Make 3. Braid them together. Weave the braid through row 19 by passing it under each 1 dc, and over each 7 dc. Place the hat on your head (or on a form that has the correct circumference, be careful, many forms out there are smaller than the average adult woman) and tie the ends to make the hat fit. Unbraid the ends after the knot.

Wear or give and enjoy!

43 Comments on Shine On Sun Hat ~ Free Crochet Pattern

  1. I absolutely love this hat!!!. Do you think a stiff cotton yarn like Peaches ‘n Cream would work or would you recommend a softer cotton like Hobby Lobby’s “I Love This Cotton” Thank you so much for the pattern

    • I think either type of yarn would work, but neither of those actual yarns would work as they are too thick (they are worsted and the pattern calls for DK.) As long as you can get gauge, the brimlock will hold the shape of the brim.

      • Thanks for your reply. The more research I do , I believe that that a sock weight would be better. Or…I may just have to break down and order the Cascade Fixation 🙂

        • Whatever gets you the gauge, but I do really LOVE the Fixation! The slight stretch to it is nice for the hat as well.

  2. I love your sun hats. My mother asked me to make her some hats because she had cancer removed from the top of her head and the doctor told her to wear hats. So I am so glad that you put there patterns out for everyone who loves to do our crafts and for the people who wear them. thanks so much.

    • If you like how it looks without the wire, then that is fine. You can always give it a try, make the last round without the wire, and don’t clip the yarn. Then try it on and see what you think. If you don’t like it, you can take the last round out and add in the wire.

  3. I’d love to make this hat in white for my Grand daughters wedding. The lady at Hobby Lobby gave me Baby Bee Baby Mine Angel instead. Will that work and were would I get the Brimlock or Nylon hat wire joiners? I have never used this stuff, any tips on how/what to use? Been to several places here, but nobody can help me. The Wedding is on July 18.

    • There is a link in the pattern for where to buy the brimlock and joiners online, I don’t know where to buy it in person. I have no idea if the yarn you bought will work because I am not familiar with it. You will have to make a swatch and see if you can get gauge.

  4. Jessie, I LOVE this hat!!! I am making it in Nazli Garden #10 cotton thread (with 3 extra stitches of width in each diamond to make up for thin yarn) which shows off your stitch pattern to full advantage and it’s fabulous! Brimwire is hard to find, but I’m thinking what I can substitute. My hope was to be able to fold this into a suitcase or totebag for the perfect, lightweight sunhat. (see it on my Ravelry project page “Crushable sunhat”)

      • Yes, i saw it but I couldn’t wait for delivery. I used boning, which worked well, and now I can fold my new hat flat (into a circle 1/4 the size of the outer brim) for travel and pop it back onto my head when needed. You have created a fabulous accessory design!!!!!

        • Cool! Boning is great for that, if you tried that with the brimlock, it might snap, so boning was a better choice for you anyway. 🙂

          • Jessie, I want to let you know that my cotton thread version of your hat won First Place in the “Crocheted Hats” category at the great State Fair of Texas!! It will be on display there Sept. 25 through Oct. 18. Thank you!!!

          • That is so wonderful!!! If you would like to send me some photos and a few details I would love to share your success. 🙂 You can email me at [email protected] and let me know if you have a website or Ravelry profile you would like me to link. <3

          • Jessie..thanks for developing and then sharing this wonderful pattern. I am considering making it and wondered how long it took for you to complete this. That would be relative as you’re probably a much faster and more dedicated crafter. I love my yardwork..lol. Also, I’ve looked through all comments and can’t seem to find any others who’ve made and posted pics of their results. Tried to find Jo’s hat on State Fair of Texas but no go as this is 3 years later. TIA and thanks for wonderful patterns and for sharing.

  5. You have some beautiful creations. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity, your time and your wonderful patterns. I can see me getting a lot of use of this gorgeous had when I move to Ecuador later this year. Thanks again.

  6. Just a question—on round 20 you say we should end up with 10 sets of 9 DC, ch 2; however, if you add up ch 3 counts as 1st DC, DC in 7 DC, 2 DC in ch 2 sp, ch 2, you get ten DC, ch 2, not 9. Am I reading this wrong? It’s the same with the rest of the round’s instructions; you end up with 10 DC in each group instead of 9.

  7. The link for brimlock does not work. I keep getting error message page not found. How much brimlock does it take and what gauge and how many fasteners? I love this pattern. Thank you so much for creating this simple and easy to make hat. I am making a few to give as Christmas presents.

    • Hmmm…maybe they changed links or aren’t around anymore, try Googling Brimlock. Isn’t the other info on the list? I’d say 1.5 yds, it usually only has one gauge, about 3/32″ I think, and just one fastener.
