Crochet a beach hat

 I have made a similar hat few years ago when I was a beginner in crochet and now after nearly 15 years of crocheting, I am recreating this hat again, a bit differently, it is easier than it looks, nothing complicated if you know how to half double crochet and how to make a cross stitch, I'll leave all the links required for you to check, mostly video links if you'd like to learn the cross stitch.

I used double strand for this pattern to make a bit rigid and solid however when worn it is still soft.

I have chosen two colors but you can customize the way you like, preferably using cotton or bamboo yarn for summer time.
