As much as a fully reversible hat appeals in concept, the actual knitting of such a piece is not so much fun.
With a Brim was created in response to requests from loyal followers that wanted a hat pattern based upon my ‘This Side’ cowl. The request spawned 2 hats - ‘With a Brim’ and the fully reversible ‘Double Dip’.

With a Brim is written for 3 yarn weights (Fingering, DK, and Worsted), and comes in 7 sizes (small newborn to large adult)

With A Brim is a beanie knit in the round.
The pattern is written for 3 yarn weights, and 7 sizes.
The pattern starts with a fold over brim in the main colour, then sees you work towards the crown of the hat, utilising the main colour and contrast colour in a slip stitch pattern.
At the end of the project, you will need to whipstitch the fold over brim to secure it.
