I used simply soft brand yarn that has a sheen to it and then Bernet yarn for the flower and green band.
I started with a 5 crochet chain ring. 2nd row I did 2 single crochet in each chain around. Then after joining, did 3 rows of double crochet increasing a stitch in the top of every other previous double stitch until the size I thought was sufficient for the top of the hat.
Then I did a row of shell stitch (single crochet,3 double crochet, 1 single crochet, all in one chain stitch of last row. Skip a stitch and repeat. Next, I did another row of double crochet using the base of each shell stitch and joined. I added 5 double crochet rows using the green for the 4th row. When the 5th row was completed I did a finishing row of shell stitch again to frame the face. I then crocheted the little flower and sewed to the center of the bonnet. Ribbons could be added on either side.
To finish this one, I crocheted a circle of 3 rows single crochet and added a little embroidered Duck (from craft store) in the middle.
I also finished another beautiful lacy Sashay yarn scarf in shades of orange, rust and red.
Wear indoors or out for a beautiful accent to your sweaters and blouses, so versatile.
