brim serve to add body to the points where the brim buttonband are anchored. Omit
the aps if you intend to omit the buttonband.

Fold aps to WS of hat and tack into place
inside ribbing. With crochet hook and
CC, work a rnd of sc (see below) around
bottom edge as foll, working through
double thickness of folded edge of aps:
*sc into next knit st, skip next purl st; rep
from * around. Join to rst sc with sl st,
then fasten off. Buttcnband: With
crochet hook, MC, and RS facing, beg at
bottom edge in the middle of one ap and
working upward toward body of hat
(staying within 1
column of ribbing),
pick up 8 sts through
double thickness of
ap. Place sts on
smaller cir needle or dpn. Work in garter
st (knit every row) until band reaches
around back of hat to cover second ap.
The snugness of the brim can be adjusted
by shortening or lengthening this band.
Sample band measures 1" shorter than
actual distance between aps, so the band
cinches in the brim by about 1". When
band measures desired length, BO all sts.
Pin band to ribbing over second ap and,
with MC, sew buttons through band and
double thickness of second ap. Weave in
loose ends.
