Cotton Sun Hat - Free Crochet Pattern

I first made this quick cotton sun hat for my little girl last Summer. It kept the sun out of her eyes and she always received lots of lovely compliments when she wore it. It's rare to find a hat she'll happily keep on her head but this one has been a hit! This pattern is for a child’s size and should fit around 3 years (my 2 and almost 5 year old can both wear this size!) it’s easy to adapt for other sizes too.
I used 1 ball of the WI Home Cotton Aran in light blue with a 5.5mm hook, you could use any aran weight cotton yarn. Use a smaller hook and/or dk cotton if making a smaller size
The hat is made using treble and double crochet stitches worked in a spiral so you don't get a noticeable seam, just use a stitch marker in the first stitch of each round to help keep count of your rows.
