Stitches Used:
sl st = slip stitch
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet

Additional Terms:
3dc cluster = dc3tog in same stitch.
Cross stitch = sk st, dc in next st, cross over st just made and dc in skipped st.
Cross Stitch Increase = dc in next unworked st, cross over st just made, dc in previous st.
Working in the 3rd Loop of hdc – Instructions: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch forward to look at the back and you should see another “V” made by the “yarn over”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”. This is called the 3rd loop.
Center sc = Insert your hook through the center of the post instead of through the top two loops, and complete the stitch as you would a normal single crochet.
st/sts = stitch/stitches
sp/sps = space/spaces

Additional Notes:
-ch 1 at beginning of round does not count as a stitch.
-Pattern is worked in multiples of 4
-The brim uses a special technique to create the ribbed texture. See pattern notes on blog.
