Pattern Notes:

  • Pattern is written in American English terms.
  • Pattern is worked in rounds.
  • Join not join at the end of a round unless otherwise stated. Instead use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch and move it up as your work progresses.
  • Weave in ends as needed.
  • All rounds are worked with the right side facing.
  • For the hat brim, when working through both thickness, at the front of the hat you will work as you would through the knit stitch, then pick up the corresponding stitch of the foundation row now on the inside of the hat, working through the top loops you would normally work through for an sc.
  • While working the graph, you may crochet over the non-working yarn, or carry it behind your work.
  • The knit stitch does not have a lot of stretch. If you would like a larger brim for your hat, increase your starting chain by the number needed to reach the required circumference. Then for each extra ch st, increase the stitch counts at the back of the hat, between the last and first letters “C” and “A.” The rest of the pattern will remain the same.
