FO - Cute Little Girl Sunhat

Crochet sun hat

I crocheted this cute sunhat as a gift for a special one year old!

This pattern from 52 Weeks of Crafting was really clear and easy to follow. I didn't do the last couple of rows for the floppy brim, so it is halfway between the cloche and floppy hat. I was able to crochet this in one night, very lucky since I kinda ordered the yarn quite late and got it two days before the party...

Yarn: Spring Cotton from Bendigo Mills, and some stash cotton for the blue contrast.
Hook: 4mm plastic hook (not the best, really need to get some more of those Clover ones).

I've been using Bendigo Woollen Mills yarn quite a bit recently, they seem to be a great Australian company. The yarns I have ordered so far have been good quality and great colours. The prices are extremely reasonable, and service is always very quick. If you are in Australia, I definitely recommend checking them out.

Once I finished the hat, I crocheted a quick little flower,  using a pattern from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller.

This is one pretty hat! You did a terrific job on it. Do you find that cotton holds up its shape and size better crocheted?
