Has anyone made this hat? Here's the website: http://www.knittingatknoon.com/sunhatpatt.html

If you have, what yarn did you use? How did it turn out?

I used an acrylic yarn and it turned out fine. I did add one thing to the pattern however. I found the band around the bottom of the hat stretched out as it was worn so I stitched in a grosgrain ribbon to keep it sized.

I tried it in Debbie Bliss wool/cotton and the visor flopped pathetically. Ripped it out and did a bucket hat instead.

It's darling. I think if I tried it I'd be tempted to find some raffia or something. ;-) Not sure I'd have the courage to knit it except in exactly what the directions specified, and even then ... ???

I was just wondering... Do they add a cardboard to the front part, otherwise, how does it stand up?

the world is knitted from one beautifully variegated skein and it's up to us not to drop a stitch.

I love that hat, and I keep forgetting that I want to make it. I may even keep it for myself (in the year and a half I've been knitting, I've made absolutely nothing for me).

The bill on this hat does not have any stiffening but it is a large bill that goes around the head. It reminds me of some of the hats worn in the colonial days and they also had soft bills. The fit is more like a bonnet rather than a baseball cap.
