Hat brims: 1x1 vs 2x2 ribbing?
I'm now starting my second ever hat, and I was wondering which type of ribbing would be best for the brim. I want one that uses the least amount of yarn possible (because I'm afraid I might not have enough to finish the hat anyway, and so trying to save on yarn), but also of course one that's good and stretchy but retains its shape really well. My pattern calls for 2x2, and that's what I used for my first hat, but I just don't really like the way it looks--I like 1x1 better. Suggestions? What do you usually use for beanie hat brims?
