The brim of this hat is started with a provisional cast on and worked sideways as a long strip of garter stitch. The ends are joined with three-needle bind off and then stitches are picked up along one edge to knit the body of the hat. Decreases shape the crown, and the remaining stitches are worked as a long cord to which a tassel is attached after the knitting is complete.

Note: The brim is worked at a very tight gauge and stretches to fit snugly. Use larger needles for a looser fit.
