This very stretchy ruffled sunhat is lightweight for crisp cool spring or autumn days and nights. It uses the Garter stitch throughout - first in rows for the body of the hat and then in rounds for the ruffle. This is a great project for using up a growing pile of stash yarn! For this project, I used Caron Simply Soft 100% acrylic yarn for its softness and elasticity. If you are not a crocheter (and for the most part, I am NOT), you can embellish the hat instead with a flower or bow barrette purchased from a craft store.

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!
