I created a master class on crochetting this summer hat for a girl primarily for one wonderful person.
Vika has a two-year-old little girl named Erika, for whom her mother wanted to crochet a beautiful summer hat with such a pretty pattern. But numerous attempts with unraveling always resulted in the hat being too big. So, I decided to stop giving verbal advice and take my hook to personally crochet such a hat and know exactly how many pattern repeats are needed for a certain yarn and hook size.
Of course, by the time the master class on crochetting a hat for girls is released, little Erika will already be rocking her new accessory, but there are many other girls in the world whose mothers will also want to crochet such a hat for their princess. My lesson and crochetting patterns will help all of you!

Crochet pattern for the last rows of panama hat • Crochet ruffles
A small cheat sheet. After crocheting a circle, the pattern in the hat is distributed as follows: the number of double crochets in each shell row is 5, 5, 7, 7, 9, 9, 9, 9, 9, 11, 11.
To increase the size of the hat without changing the yarn or hook size, you can crochet 2 rows of 5, 2 rows of 7, and 2 rows of 9, and then in the row without shells, make a chain of 5 stitches instead of 4, and continue crocheting shell rows with 11 double crochets and the last 2 rows with 13 double crochets. You need to try and calculate what will work best for you.
I always recommend decorating a finished Panama hat, for example, with a flower, butterfly, or bow, or even a few appliques, so that both you and your child can easily find the front and back and not confuse the right side with the wrong side. Based on experience, without a “pointer” on a knitted hat, I found my daughter wearing her hat inside out and upside down about 90% of the time at daycare 🙂
