Alternatively you can pick up stitches from the top edge of the "hat band" on the inside of the tam and sc/dc around in a one size smaller gauge. An SC or DC on the top, inner edge of that ribbing wouldn't show.

Wow thank you..but I did complete it..then using a Crochet Sl st (turned out just o.k...check it out I have a pic under Watcha Knitting _ Rasta) around the rim skipping around a bit on the co edge...
