This flower hat comes in adult size only. It comes with two styles of petals, Sunflower (pointed petals) and Gerbera (rounded petals). A base hat is worked first, then the petals are worked individually and sewn onto the hat.

Stitches used are ch, sl, sc, hdc, dc, and moss stitch with explanations for each.
The pattern is written, with abbreviations and full color photos.

Materials: I used Bernat Super Value yarns, but any medium 4 size yarn will work just fine. You will need at least three different colors:

  • ColorA - base hat (uses about 150 yards), I recommend a GREEN for this!
  • ColorB - petals (needs about 250 yards), I recommend yellow for sunflower, any color for gerbera/daisy version or several different colors to combine to a rainbow flower, any color can be used (could be a good stash-buster!)
  • ColorC - center circle (uses only a small amount, rest piece is fine for this) I recommend a brown, yellow or orange for this, but any color can be used
