Ballard is worked in the round from the bottom up. Once the brim is complete, increased are worked and the body of the hat is worked in stranded colorwork from a chart. You will work the 8 stitch repeat 14 times around.

Integrated decreases shape the crown. Change to double pointed needles when the circumference of the hat is to small to fit on the circular needle.
