"Scarf Hat" Crochet Pattern
To protect myself from the sun during agricultural work, I decided to crochet a hat with an attached scarf for sun protection.
The back of the head is breathable, with a wide brim in the front and coverage for the neck.
Such a hat for agricultural work is quite attractive for sun protection.
However, I couldn't find a hat with the desired atmosphere, and I had never actually used one before.
That's why I thought, "Why not make one with my preferred materials?" That's how this project came about.
For the hat portion, I used Marchenart's Manila Hemp Bulky, which can be washed if it gets dirty.
It has a nice texture and resembles a straw hat.
Since the hat portion is in a half shape, you can easily roll it up, and the scarf portion can be folded, making it compact and easy to carry.
I was indecisive about the stitch pattern for the scarf, and after crocheting several swatches, I settled on this particular stitch pattern.
If the stitch is too dense, it can be hot, and if it's too transparent, the sun protection effect around the neck may decrease.
Considering the compatibility with the hat and the design that the hat itself is likely to attract attention, a thin and understated stitch pattern felt just right.
I crocheted the scarf using Gosyo's 'Irish Linen Lace' yarn that I purchased a long time ago.
When I first started crocheting this hat, I thought it might become a pattern just for myself, so I used the yarn in my stock without much thought.
However, I received positive feedback (thank you!) and when I saw the completed hat, it felt like a piece that might inspire others to crochet using the same yarn... I apologize for using a discontinued yarn.
During my search, I happened to come across a yarn that has a remarkably similar feel, so I would like to share additional information about it!
It's called 'Graceful Linen' from the same producer, Gosyo.
I haven't used it myself, so this is just an assumption, but it has a similar quality and texture to Irish Linen Lace, with a 100g cone containing 757m of yarn. The color variations are also nice, with various beautiful colors available.
I'll put a link at the bottom of the page, so please feel free to check it out.
Manila Hemp Bulky used for the hat portion also comes in a wide range of colors, so depending on the color combination, you can achieve an agricultural or resort-like feel, giving a different atmosphere.
As an additional note about the stitching technique, this project uses the "Herringbone Treble Crochet" stitch.
Some of you may have used it before, as it has been used in works of my books.
However, I understand that it may be unfamiliar to some of you, so I will provide a link to the video tutorial page on the Ronique website for "How to Make Herringbone Treble Crochet" (also mentioned in the pattern).
Other than that, it can be crocheted using basic techniques.
The scarf portion can be worked on during spare moments or is perfect for mobile crocheting.
I hope you enjoy crocheting it in your favorite color combination and use it for sun protection!
