This is a PDF CROCHET PATTERN to make a hat, NOT the actual finished item. There will be no refunds for failure to read the listing details, this listing is clearly for a crochet pattern.
This is a PDF crochet pattern for a gorgeous sun hat with a stripe of star stitches, which made me think of the sun shining through the stars, hence the name “Starlight”. The pattern calls for 20 lb hemp or cotton twine, I do NOT suggest substituting other yarns for this one. My pattern testers and I tried several other yarns but none of them provided the same results as the hemp. Because of this, I wrote a similar pattern specifically for cotton that also has a stripe of star stitch, see “Ashlee Beanie or Cloche”. The patterns are similar but definitely different enough to be worth buying both. If you cannot find the right hemp, or you are worried about working with hemp (it can be hard on your hands but the finished result is beautiful), then see the Ashlee Beanie or Cloche pattern instead. This makes a great hat for a photo shoot or for a photographer who needs photo props! Perfect for warm weather!
0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, toddler, child, teen/adult, and large adult
Intermediate (pattern is easy, hemp can be hard to work with). Must be able to follow a written crochet pattern.
This pattern is written in STANDARD U.S. CROCHET TERMS and in English only.
Crochet Hook Size: “J” (6 mm)
Yarn: 1-2 balls 20 lb hemp twine. For sizes 0-3 through 6-12 months, you will need at least 1 ball of hemp (100 yards) and for all the larger sizes, you will need 2 balls. (Cotton twine can be substituted for the hemp, check hardware sections.) You can find hemp in stores like Walmart , Joann's, Michael's, Hobby Lobby, etc. in the jewelry-making sections. It is the smallest hemp and is usually in a ball that is 100 yards or 400 feet. The "natural polished" hemp available at Walmart is much softer to work with than the regular hemp.
Notions: stitch markers, measuring tape, fabric flower (optional)
