My friend wondered if I could design a hat for her little girl, Gia. Gia loves sea life and one of her favorite toys is a shark plushy.  Playing with sharks brought fedoras to mind. After some trial and error, and lots of frogging, here's what I came up with:


Instead of starting with a ring, I started with a foundation strip of half double crochet stitches, and increased from there. The top is made of half double crochet stitches, the brim in single crochet, and the "ribbon" is made of a long strand of foundation half double crochet stitches.

Because it's getting warmer, I decided to recreate this look in raffia. The "ribbon" is still in worsted weight acrylic and the brim has more rounds to create more shade. I had to use a smaller size hook for this, but it's built from the same concept.

Splendid! It takes a very crafty girl to crochet fedora-shaped hats. These are beautiful!
