Since it is a purchased pattern, we can't link to it to see what you're dealing with. What do the first rows say up to the point you're at?

This hat has a brim that's knit sideways around the hat. So every time you knit over to the main body of the hat, you knit two sts together, one from the brim and one from the main body of the hat (one of the 80sts). I forget if that's at the end of row 1 or at the beginning of row 2. but that way, the brim grows long enough to reach around the hat at the same time that you're attaching it to body of the hat.
This has come up in the past and the previous advice may help you. http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=104056

Think of the brim as a strip about 20sts wide that you knit as a strip (like a tiny scarf) and then attach to the little beanie that is the main part of the hat. Now, instead of knitting that strip and then attaching, what you do is attach the strip to the beanie as you knit it. So every time you come to the edge that attaches to the beanie, you knit 2 together, the last stitch from the brim and one stitch from the hat. You're knitting the brim at the same time that you're attaching it.
