Heat Stroke


Heat Stroke

by Christina Bain

Last year when the Spring Interweave Crochet came out with those darling flip flops “Seaside Espadrilles by Jennifer Appleby” I ran right out and bought some jute. Then it sat around and nothing happened. I stumbled upon the jute again the other day and thought about what else could be made from this interesting material. After getting a bad sunburn on a beautiful spring day it came to me, a Faux Straw Hat!







Materials

  • 1 ball of 3 ply jute (didn’t have the yardage listed on it but there was plenty left over)
  • US L / 8mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle
  • I” wide ribbon or fabric strips as desired

Finished Size

One size fits most

Pattern
Ch 4, join with a slip stitch to form a ring.

Round 1: Ch 3, 9 dc into the ring, join with slip stitch into the top of the starting ch 3.

Round 2: Ch 3, 2 dc in joining stitch, 3 dc in each dc around, join with slip stitch into the top of the starting ch 3.

Round 3: Ch 5, skip 1 dc, *dc into next dc, ch 2, skip 1 dc, repeat from * around, join with slip stitch into the 3rd ch of starting ch 5.

Round 4: Sl st into next dc, Ch 5, skip 1 dc, *dc into next dc, ch 2, skip 1 dc, repeat from * around, join with slip stitch into the 3rd ch of starting ch 5.

Round 5 & 6: Repeat Round 4

Round 7: Ch 3, 5 dc into ring formed by ch 2 of previous round, * 1 dc into dc, 5 dc into ring formed by ch 2 of previous round, repeat from * around, join with slip stitch into top of the starting ch 3.

Round 8: Ch 3, dc in each dc around. Fasten off and weave in the yarn ends.

Finishing Instructions

Weave the 1” wide ribbon or fabric strips through the holes created in rounds 3, 4, 5, and 6. Tie ribbon/fabric at back of hat.
