This is my first crochet project and I'm kinda proud. It think it turned out fine. I modified a pattern in a book I borrowed from a friend. It called for a snap closure in the back, but I decided to make it a slip on type visor. Here are the pics:

Here is the front view. Please excuse my no-sun-seeing, pasty white face.

Here is a view of the buttons. My husband and I bought these from a girl who made and sold them on the side at her job.

A good side view...

And the back!

Thanks for looking! Any comments/critiques welcome.

Construction of Visor:

The Band part is 10 hdc's wide and then you measure the circumference of your head and make it that long(ch11, *hdc into second stch from hook, hdc to end, ch1*). Then I took the the two ends, fold and put the RS's together and sc into the top loop of side1(closest to you) and the bottom loop of side2 to close the band off. Then I sc edge in contrasting color (both bottom and top of band before you make the brim). Sorry for the delay on the brim, but I will post that ASAP! Thanks Again...

That's cute I like it and I like the color of it too.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Thank You! Thank You! Everyone. I did a lot of swatches before I decided to do a project. And this was a simple project. It looks really awesome with pigtail braids!

As for the brim I followed the pattern the book gave, I think I had to fill in some of the gaps the pattern had.

If anybody wants this pattern let me know and I will post my version.

Thanks Again!
