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.
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 yarn



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
R 18 -chain 3 slip stitch in each stitch
R 19 - chain 3 and slip stitch in each chain 3, fasten off eave in ends


Create a loopy flower in black and attach :)

Stardust - any color you like I used #1303 Brown * this requires very little yarn, so make a lot!*
E crochet hook

Skill - Advanced Beginner
(* HINT this is basically a vertical row or a shell*)
First stitch***
Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

suggested lengths _
Woman's s/m ~18 shells
l/xl ~20 shells
Mans~ 23 shells
child~ 11-15 ( 11 fits most five year olds)

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.

***Add the cross part***


attach the yarn to the sid…

Easy simple no shaping stocking ornament

Chiq Shell Shorts

Say the name 10 times fast hahahaha!




I wrote this pattern at the request of AFC Check  them out to see all the other amazing patterns and videos they have!!!


Hello everyone, Have you noticed how many celebs are donning crochet items? I've noticed a lot of crochet shorts out there, why buy them when you can make them with this free pattern? The other upside to making them is you can make them the length, color and size you want!! I will write out directions for a small adjust them as you go for your size. For example to start  do FDQC until you are from one hip to the other and then add a few extra stitches for the seam. 
To start this pattern is worked int twp pieces the front and back. They will look like undies until we get to the legs

Use crochet hook size J
Use any 4 ply yarn 
1-Start by doing Foundation quadruple crochet 50 2-sc in each stitch for a total of 50


3- make shells (2hdc,ch1,2hdc) across skipping 3 sc in between each shell. 4- do six rows of shells ( skipping 4) …
