This American Flag hat fascinator is the perfect way to celebrate Independence Day in style this year! It’s a classic and timeless piece that will never go out of style and will be sure to make you stand out in a crowd. It has a classic flag design with a unique twist, making it perfect for showing off your American pride.
In celebration of the Fourth of July, this stars and stripes mini top hat would make a wonderful accessory to add to your party attire. Attaching the hat to a headband or securing it with a hair clip or grip is the easiest way to wear it.
The top diameter of this hat fascinator measures approximately 3 inches in diameter, the brim diameter measures 4.5 inches in diameter, and the height measures 3 inches in diameter.
With this design, the designer used UK Chunky/US Bulky weight yarn, a 6mm crochet hook, and a 5mm crochet hook to create the size.
Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky yarn in Red, White, and Blue was used by the designer of this cute crocheted hat. If you prefer to use a different yarn weight, you can do that, but it will affect the size of your mini hat. There is only a small amount of material you need, around 15-20g or 20-30 yards for each color.
If you use a different yarn weight, you will need a recommended sized hook, and one size smaller. As an example, if you are using Worsted weight yarn, you should use a hook size 5mm and a hook size 4mm.
A fastener will also be required in order to be able to wear your hat. You can use a rigid plastic headband, or if you plan on wearing your hair up, you can use hair clips.
For this project, it isn’t that important to have an exact gauge, just try to keep your stitches consistent as you go along.
