One of the things I appreciate about that reversible cable brim is that it can be worn two ways – as above, with the brim turned up for a closer fit, and as shown below with the brim folded down for more of a slouchy fit.

It can also be knit two ways! I have been told that UK stitchers tend to knit on straight needles more, and US knitters tend to knit more on circulars. The brim must be knit in rows, but after you’ve picked up the stitches for the garter stitch body of the hat, you can work in rounds OR rows.
