I really want to make this style of hat, because it has a nice brim and hugs the head at the top:
I don't want to do the exact pattern with the sheep and stuff on it, but instead just a regular stockinette pattern. I understand the instructions for the brim. But for the head-band it said to follow the chart, which I won't.
My question is that once I finish the brim, how do I achieve that snug look at the head band? So that the brim can flare out like it does in the picture? I'd count the # of stitches needed for the headband (from the pattern chart provided) and we're still working with 112 stitches. HELP!!!!
Thanks so much.
