Thanks, Jan, that's pretty much what I'm doing. I'll soon know how the brims working out. When I get to the turning row I just might try the picot edge. Thanks for explaining it to me. I'm keeping notes so I can know when to work the decreases on the other side of the brim. There is probably a pattern out there for needles that's similar but I didn't find it and thought it shouldn't be too complicated. Because I was in a rush to get yarn and had to do it locally I went to Walmart and got a Peaches & Cream ombre called Love
. The person it's for loves pinks and reds and that's what this is, with some white thrown in. Very bright and cheerful. I like the way it's working up.
