FREE Pattern : Crochet Hat with Ruffles Brim

I've made this hat last year for my daughter inspired from another crocheter Stitch of Love. This is my first ever written down pattern and its took me almost a month since my English is no good at all :-)). So feel free to tell me if there's any mistake, or even if you are having difficulties to understand my pattern.
