A Statement Piece for Your Summer Wardrobe

After designing the Sunlit Bucket Hat for everyday sun protection, I found myself inspired to create something a bit more daring for those special summer moments. The result is the Grand Ruffle Brim Hat—a statement piece designed to turn heads and add a flair of dramatic style to any outfit.

Why the Grand Ruffle Brim Hat?

This hat isn’t just another accessory; it’s a bold declaration of style. With its oversized ruffled brim and airy treble crochet stitches, it captures both the eye and the imagination. It’s the perfect choice for those who want to make a statement while still enjoying practical sun protection.

Design and Craftsmanship

The Grand Ruffle Brim Hat is crafted using a combination of treble crochet and chain stitches to create a light and breathable fabric, which makes the hat both comfortable and stylish for the warmer months. The dramatic ruffled brim is not just a design choice but a functional feature that provides ample shade from the sun.

Materials and Color

For this design, I chose DROPS PARIS yarn in a wheat color, a nod to natural tones that complement any summer palette. The yarn’s blend of 100% cotton ensures the hat is both durable and soft, ideal for sensitive skin.

Materials Used:

  • Yarn: DROPS PARIS, 100% cotton, worsted weight, color 67 (wheat), 180 g / 270 m
  • Hooks: 3 mm and 4 mm
  • Accessories: Yarn Needle, Scissors, Measuring Tape, Stitch Markers

Pattern Details

The Grand Ruffle Brim Hat is rated easy in difficulty, making it accessible for crocheters looking for a simple yet rewarding project. The pattern is worked in joined rounds, beginning with a magic ring and progressing through a series of treble crochets and chain spaces to form the base and dramatic brim.

Key Techniques:

  • Starting with a magic ring for a clean, tight center.
  • Working in treble crochet and chain spaces to create an airy fabric.
  • Finishing with a spectacular ruffled brim that uses multiple increases to achieve its volume.
