Sun Hat - Adult Sized

Time for a crafty post...

A while back I posted a cute little sun hat I made for my friends little girl for her 1st birthday. My husband was very impressed by this hat, so when I decided to make a hat for his Aunt who is fighting cancer he suggested I make a similar hat for her. I decided to make it a light tan color to give it a straw hat kind of feel and to make it more neutral in color. I also bought a couple of different flowers on clips so she could change out the color of the flower. It really isn't that different than the hat I made for the little girl, but because it was was bigger and I didn't want a ribbon band I mad a few minor changes to make sure it still looked good.

Sun Hat- Adult sized
Supplies: Worsted weight yarn, size J hook
Instructions: work in continuous rounds
Round 1 Chain 2. In second chain from hook work 6 sc.
Round 2 2 sc in each sc 12 stitches
Round 3 [1 sc in next stitch, 2 sc in next stitch] around, 18 stitches.
Round 4 [1 sc in next 2 stitches, 2 sc in next stitch] around, 24 stitches
Round 5 [1 sc in next 3 stitches, 2 sc in next stitch] around, 30 stitches
Round 6 [1 sc in next 4 stitches, 2 sc in next stitch] around, 36 stitches

Round 8 [1 sc in next 6 stitches, 2 sc in next stitch] around, 48 stitches

I ended my sc rounds after round 9, but you can continue increasing until you achieve the desired size
Round 10

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
