Here is a beautiful hat design that is knit seamlessly from the top down. It has a simple garter stitch on the brim that is worked diagonally. Use any combination of colors you like or make it in solid color. The brim band overlaps and is held together with buttons. You can easily adjust the placement of the buttons for a perfect fit. Wear it as a beanie or fold the brim up for a cloche look.
