Flippy Floppy Scarecrow Sunhat

I've been meaning to make this hat for my son, who just loves the dingle dangle Scarecrow song, for which he required a flippy floppy hat like this one!

I took a break from the cabled spiral bunny rug I'm currently working on as it simply taking aaages, and decided to make this hat as I knew it wouldn't take long. It took me a couple of hours, the body made up quickly with my 4mm hook. I used yellow 8 ply cotton from Bendigo, its been sitting here for months and finally I got to take off the label. For the brim I switched to a 3.5mm hook and made tighter sc stitches so the brim would sit up a little, but still be floppy. The body is a simple beanie of dc with trb cables at the increases. I started the brim earlier than usual because the brim would hang down, and otherwise would cover the eyes too much.

After I sewed in the end, I popped it on my sons head and turned on his favourite video of the Scarecrow song by Justin Fletcher. The action shots were so action filled they were all blurry, but I managed to get this shot featuring the hat while he's watching his video and dancing along. Oh so cute!
