The written and charted directions are on separate pages along with the abbreviations so you only have to print what you need.

Please note that I suggest that you drop 2 needle sizes from the size you used to get gauge rather than just one for the Sailor’s Rib pattern. It is a stitch pattern that likes to spread. Conversely, the Broad Spiral Rib will produce the tightest brim because of the stitches used. Depending on your preferences, you may wish to go up a needle size for this stitch pattern.

This pattern has been tech edited and test knit.
