Notes: Sweetfern is constructed from the bottom up in the
round and is designed to have a slouchy fit at the crown.
It begins with a 1x1 rib brim, then moves into a garter
stitch and brioche pattern for the body of the hat.
During the Body and Crown sections of the hat, each
round is worked twice, first with yarn B, then with yarn
A. The yarn to be used is indicated in (brackets) at the
beginning of each round.
