I made this sunhat with 100% cotton yarn for springtime (or autumn) wear. The blue/green hat was made with Hobby Lobby's "I Love This Cotton" and the pink hat was made with Bernat's Cottontots yarn. The hat is knit in the round in stockinette stitch (all knit stitches because it is in the round). The edging for the brim and the flower are crocheted with a single crochet stitch.

I have been knitting for 60 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together! I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at with any of your questions or concerns. You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern. Thank you and happy knitting!
