The latest new yarn called Bernat Softee Cotton is not dishrag cotton. It’s fashion cotton on the light #3 level. I double-stranded to provide more strength and durability. The hat has substance and possibly a hat style you would find in a gift shop. The way the bean stitch and the 2 dc that share a stitch work together, visually gives me the impression of weaving and intention gapping spaces to let the heat from your head escape.

Please gauge with double stranding to get the right gauge. Interior unstretched is 7” across. Brim diameter is 10”. The brim naturally stays up due to the design.
