Learn from my changes:
- Instead of doing a chain for the starting row, I did a FSC (foundation single crochet). This gives it far more stretch!
- I switched from a G hook on the brim to a size 7 hook for the rest of the hat to give it slightly more room. If you have a big head, this would be advisable! If not, you could easily keep it the same.
- Add embellishments to change the look. There are so many different ones out there. (I made a starfish for my husband’s aunt since she loves the ocean!)
- On the SC rows, you could easily add a second color to make the X’s stand out more. I loved how that look turned out on my other hat, even though I don’t love the colors in it.
