Pattern Description:

This is a PDF crochet pattern for a gorgeous sun hat with a stripe of star stitches, which made me think of the sun shining through the stars, hence the name "Starlight". The pattern calls for 20 lb hemp or cotton twine, I do NOT suggest substituting other yarns for this one. My pattern testers and I tried several other yarns but none of them provided the same results as the hemp. Because of this, I wrote a similar pattern specifically for cotton that also has a stripe of star stitch, see "Ashlee Beanie or Cloche". The patterns are similar but definitely different enough to be worth buying both. If you cannot find the right hemp, or you are worried about working with hemp (it can be hard on your hands but the finished result is beautiful), then see the Ashlee Beanie or Cloche pattern instead.

For sizes 0-3 through 6-12 months, you will need at least 1 ball of hemp (100 yards) and for all the larger sizes, you will need 2 balls.

All of my patterns are written in U.S. Standard Crochet Terms.

Excellent So cute!!!  April 25, 2013

I love this pattern! I tested it for Jennifer and really love how it turned out! The special stitches used for the band really stand out with the hemp. It can take a little longer than expected to complete the hat if you have never worked with hemp before, but it is totally worth it . My daughter looks so cute with her sun hat :)

Both my grandmothers taught me how to crochet when I was a child. In the fall of 2010, I got involved with crocheting again and it has quickly become a passion. I love creating patterns!
