A stockinette stitch rolled edge quickly transitions into double knitting to produce a clever and practical brim. The front layer is bound off, creating space for little pockets all around the hat. Then, a background of stripes features traveling slipped stitches that spiral and skid toward the top of the hat. Options for a beanie or slouchy style hat are provided in three different sizes.
