Hat in the Ring

15 Mar

A Little Air Up Here Please!

Okay, another hat.  But this one has a bonus!  Instead of sweltering under the hot summer sun with the hair under your hat getting damper by the minute, you can enjoy air-conditioned comfort with this little number.  I used 11 plastic rings and crocheted around them, then joined them together into a ring.  This “ring of rings” measures exactly 11″ around.  If you need a bit more, you can loosen the joining stitches slightly by leaving a little space between each ring as you join them together.  The shape here is of a bucket.  If you prefer, you can tip the brim up for a more traditional  sun hat look.  As with Mein Hut, this hat is worked holding two strands of yarn together for stability.  This pattern is written for a  21″ head but is a tiny bit snug in the ring area.

    An air-conditioned hat? Wow! I’m all into that. Thanks for the cute pattern. I think this is going to be a hit with a lot of crocheters.

      Thank you Wendy! This is nice for leftover yarn. It doesn’t take too much.

    What a cool idea! I’ve been thinking of crocheting around some plastic rings (from orange juice jugs) but didn’t know how I’d use them. Nice job!

      Hi Mary! Why don’t you just make several flower motifs, join them together and proceed with the pattern? I don’t know of any other hat with flowers. Have you looked on Ravelry?
