Machine knit hat pattern done on needles?
I need a hat pattern for someone who may or may not lose her hair so an adjustable ribbon through eyelets seems like a good idea to me. I found this pattern Chemo Bucket Hat, Machine Knit Bulky which I guess is for machine knitting but I can do it on needles, I mostly needed a guide to get me started.

I'm thinking I can use a provisional cast on and work the brim in the round, knit the "hem" together from two needles and then just continue on as normal. Am I missing something important that could cause me to run into real problems? If it works out well and she likes it, I think I'll probably make more.

This seems like such a simple thing to know but right now I can use all the help I can get in the thinking department.
