A Chiq Almost Floppy Hat for Grandma- a crochet almost floppy brimmed hat

Hello Everyone!
For mother's day this year I made my grandma floppy hat that wasn't made from cotton but from soft yarn.
This is my WONDERFUL grandma, she is amazing and loving person! 
If you would like a firmer brim go ahead and use cotton yarn :)

supplies

size F and J hook
4 ply yarn - your choice. _ I used redheart soft


with White
Using size J -make a magic circle and use a yarn marker.
R 1- 10 dc in the ring
R 2- 2 dc in each
R 3- 2dc in the first, 1 dc in the next *repeat pattern (2,1)*
R 4-2 dc in the first, 1 dc in the next 3 * repeat pattern (2,1,1,1)
R 5-11 1 dc in each (silp stitch at end of round for a clean seamless color change, I didn't however and just put the Loopy flower over it)
with Black
R 12 - 1 hdc in each stitch
R 13 - 1 dc in each stitch
 With White
R 14 - 1 front post dc around each black dc
R 15 - work 1 front post DC and one dc in each stitch.. [ we do this to increase the brim diameter, for a larger brim repeat this round only do this pattern ( 1 front post dc , 1 dc, 1 front post dc, 1 front post dc, 1 dc)]
R 16 - 1 dc in each
With Black
R 17 - 1 hdc in each
