The pattern is available from Red Heart, although I made significant adaptions to the pattern because I did not understand the directions for the brim and band. I used Hobby Lobby I Love This Cotton! in Mulberry for the hat and Limedot for the flower. The hat is crocheted with a size J hook. Stitches used are chain, single crochet, double crochet, and slip stitch. After completing the first 13 rounds and increasing to the required 78 stitches I only continued working even for 5.5” not the 7.5” as called for in the pattern. I then followed the band directions completing them in-the-round.
