Pattern Notes

  • For a more structured brim, use wire. For a floppy brim, no wire is needed.
  • Before cutting wire to finish, check brim shape. Fabric should maintain original size, not stretch or pucker.
  • Blocking project is NOT recommended, especially if working wireless brim.
  • Striping happens after each round in a (MC, CC1, CC2) repeating pattern.
  • Preparing wire: With needle nose pliers, create small loop at end of wire. Shape wire to general round brim.
  • When starting round 19, if adding wire support, crochet around wire while working round as normal. Before slip stitching and fastening off round, shape wire to desired brim dimensions, snip excess wire and create second loop with pliers. Pass second loop through beginning loop and crimp closed. Slip stitch and finish round as normal.
