Laguna Sun Hat

007

I bought this kit 2 years ago and am ashamed to admit that it has been lounging on a shelf since then. After getting it out one morning, I had half of the hat done in 3 hours.

I like the fit so well I am planning on making this hat again, in cotton, or even wool. It has a great shape.

I don’t usually like to buy “kits” but I bought this one (from OneFineYarn), it come with the pattern and 10 balls of Adriafil Reflex.
Adriafil Reflex is unique material that reminds us raffia. The hat will amazingly hold the shape and no brim support is needed.

Yarn specs: 59% rayon, 41% polyester; 25g/59 meters each ball; made in Italy.
Hat is crochet using yarn doubled throughout and crochet hook I/5.5mm.
Pattern provides instructions to create a hat to your own measurements. (this is the great part, my hat fits “perfectly”!)

I used crochet hook I, and ended up using 6 balls, I have 4 left and think I will make a smaller brimmed sun hat.012

Now I’m ready to walk dogs and work in the yard.
