This is a hat that Jennifer Lopez wore on some occasion. I like the way it suits her and it’s very easy to make :)

Cotton thread or yarn, hook no. 4,5. Work holding 2 strands of thread/yarn together.

    In your first picture, it looks like there is a hat band around the hat, that you attach the buttoned strap to at the front, and which goes around the back as well, to keep the hat on the head and accentuate the pouf of the hat. But I guess I really don’t understand your directions because I don’t see that part in the instruction, I am having a bit of a hard time understanding your directions. I’ve been crocheting for almost 50 years and have never seen instructions like these before so I guess I don’t know how to follow just a picture with no row by row instruction. But it’s a really cute hat and I would love to be able to make one for my daughter.

      Dear heirhedd, I’m so sorry I wrote such bad instructions and I thank you for mentioning it, I’ll try to correct this. The band doesn’t go all around the hat but is attatched to the front of it. After completing the hat and visor, you should crochet a separate stripe of sc stitches and then sew it to the hat front. I can’t remember exactly, it depends on the yarn thickness, but maybe about 25-30 sc stitches in 5-6 rows. At the end just sew the button to one end of the band. As for the support of the puff effect, like you said, it is written in my directions: “After you complete the last round (from the diagram), crochet 4 more rounds of hdc.” This part of the hat does go all around the head and supports it firmly. I truly hope this will help.

    Hi Jelena, thanks so much for the response! I’ve uploaded pictures of my hat on Burdastyle (http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/my-very-own-j-lo-hat). I hope you’ll be proud of your little Asian apprentice, hehe ;)

    Thank you for your permission to sell~! My aunt just contacted me today and she would also like to buy the hat from me. Your pattern is simply amazing! I would love to learn more crocheting from you. Did I tell you that your hat is the first crochet project I’ve ever attempted after more than 10 years?

    Looking forward to see more of your work of art~! :D

    Hi Jelena, I made the J-Lo Hat according to your pattern but somehow the visor seem to droop downwards instead of standing out like yours did in the picture. Then again, it’s probably because I crochet with just one strand of yarn instead of two as per your instructions. Anyway, I loved the end result and I simply have to thank you for it. I’ll post a picture of my hat soon :)

    P.S. Somebody wanted to buy the hat that I made when they saw me wearing it. Would you allow people to sell the hats that was made from your pattern?

      Dear Clarisa,
      I’m very happy about your project! Yes, it may drop down because of the softness of crocheting, so you could try and use a smaller hook if you work with one strand.
      I absolutely have nothing against using this pattern for selling hats. I like sharing my experiences and if that can help people around the world to earn a bit of money, I’ll be even happier :)
      Looking forward to seeing your project! All the best to you!

    Hehe it doesn’t look so easy to me! Love the way it suits you too! If I was still in a temperate climate I’d surely try this – I am very shy when it comes to crochetting though!

    You have talent! The burgandy hat is lovely but I want the multi colour one! Crochet is simply beyond me and I admire your ability!

    Never mind how it looks on Jlo, I think it suits you wonderfully!! Hahaha
