Pattern Notes

Beginning with a tubular cast-on, this hat is worked in the round, from the brim up. The single rib brim can be worked either to a short length, or a longer length and then folded. When knitting stranded colourwork, float the non-working yarn across the back of your work, keeping the floats fairly loose to allow fabric to stretch when worn. Some rounds contain floats longer than 5 sts; trap the non-working yarn down at the back of your work when this happens.
