Small textured cocoons nestle among waving ribs to create a flowing and bumpy fabric along the brim of this textural hat. The cocoons, created by a combination of increases and decreases, flow into simple ribs that stand out against a reverse stockinette-stitch background, then converge at the top of the crown.
