I made this hat.  I designed this hat.  I love love love this hat.  I plan to make more of this hat, and play with different widths of brim (maybe single crochet for it, even?).  In the name of share and share alike, here is the pattern -- please use it!  Give it away!  Share it around!  (but nobody's allowed to make any money off it, okay?  cuz I'm not, and if you did, I'd be stinkin' jealous! )

Yarn: Bernat Handicrafter (worsted weight, 100% cotton -- any yarn matching this description will do, I think)

Hook:  5.5 mm (fits my 22.5 inch head -- I made one with a 5mm hook and it's a bit snug but will likely stretch to fit beautifully)

Funky abbreviations: 
FPDC:  yo, insert hook between stitches of row below from back to front and around the front of the post of the stitch from right to left, yo and draw yarn back around the post.  Yo and draw through 2 loops, Yo and draw through final 2 loops.

BPDC:  yo, insert hook between stitches of row below from front to back and around the back of the post of the stitch from right to left.  Yo and draw yarn back around the post.  Yo and draw through 2 loops. Yo an draw through final 2 loops.

[ ] repeat across row or around round

Pattern notes:
Ch 2 grows the height up, but then the first PDC is worked around the stitch at the base of those 2 chains.  Do not work the ch 2 stitches at the end of a row or round just ignore them.

Basketweave pattern worked flat: (on 63 stitches)

   Row 1:  ch 2, [3 BPDC, 3 FPDC] end with 3 BPDC, turn
Row 2:  ch 2, [3 FPDC, 3 BPDC] end with 3 FPDC, turn
Row 3:  ch 2, [3 BPDC, 3 FPDC] end with 3 BPDC, turn

Row 4:  ch 2, [3 BPDC, 3 FPDC] end with 3 BPDC, turn
Row 5:  ch 2, [3 FPDC, 3 BPDC] end with 3 FPDC, turn
Row 6:  ch 2, [3 BPDC, 3 FPDC] end with 3 BPDC, turn

Basketweave pattern worked in the round (on 72 stitches)

   Rounds 1 3:  ch 2, [3 FPDC, 3 BPDC], join with ss to first FPDC
   Rounds 4 6:  ch 2, [3 BPDC, 3 FPDC] , join with ss to first BPDC


HAT:

Ch 65.  Hdc in 3rd from hook and in each stitch across (62 hdc + 2 ch at end = 63 hdc)

Work basketweave pattern back and forth (flat) for 9 rows (3 blocks high x 21 blocks long)

Ch 9 at end of row and join work to begin working in the round.  Continue basketweave pattern in the round 3 more rows.   **first round only, do hdcs across the chain stitches
Work is now four blocks high.

Crown decreases ** blocks will now be only 2 rows high instead of 3:
Round 1: ch 2 [BPDC 2 tog, BPDC, 3 FPDC], join.
Round 2: ch 2 [2 BPDC, FPDC 2 tog, FPDC], join.
Round 3: ch 2 [FPDC 2 tog, 2 BPDC, 2 FPDC, 2 BPDC], join
Round 4: ch 2 [FPDC, BPDC 2 tog, 2 FPDC, 2 BPDC], join
Round 5: ch 2 [BPDC, FPDC, BPDC 2 tog, 2 FPDC], join
Round 6: ch 2 [BPDC, FPDC, BPDC, FPDC 2 tog], join
Round 7: ch 2 [skip stitch #1.  PBDC 2 tog stitches # 2 and #4 (skipping #3).  FPDC (except at end of round)]
Round 8: sc in each BPDC.  Fasten off.

Brim (is worked back and forth)

Join yarn at one corner of cut out.
Row 1: ch 2 [5hdc, 2 hdc in next stitch] end with 3 hdc, turn.
Row 2: ch 2, 2 hdc. [2 hdc in next stitch, 6 hdc] turn.
Row 3: ch 2, 5 hdc. [2 hdc in next, 7 hdc] 3 hdc, turn.
Row 4. ch 2, 2 hdc. [2 hdc in next, 8 hdc] turn
Row 5: ch 2, 3 hdc [2 hdc in next, 9 hdc]  do not turn
Sc up the side of the brim.  Hdc around cut-out, sc down other side of brim.  Fasten off.

Ties:
Option 1:  join yarn and sc 4 stitches up end of first block of basketweave at base of cut-out.  Work back and forth on these 4 stitches about 20 rows.  Fasten off and repeat on other side for second tie.

Option 2:  holding 2 strands together and using 6.5mm or 8mm hook,  make chain at base of cut-out long enough to tie in a bow.  Repeat on other side.

yes, I'll get some better pictures up at some point -- I'm in the middle of a temporary move, so I'll have to figure out how to make my camera work with the computer I'll be using... stay tuned!

Here is a version I made with a 5mm hook (instead of 5.5mm).  I changed the brim a bit:  I did sc only.  The first three rows did the increases after 9, 10 and 11 stitches.  I did one row without increases, then three more rows increasing after 12, 13 and 14, and finished off with one more row of plain sc.  I like the brim better. It is firmer and wider.

As you can see, the hat fits my kid -- she's two and a half, but has a big head.  The ties would allow this size of hat to fit most kids/young teens and adults with small heads.
