The hat begins from a circular cast-on at the crown. Increases go along the four purl “seams.” I ended up adding one additional round of increases, because my head is big and my gauge was a tiny bit tight. Other than that, I knit as written! I tried to add some length to the brim, but it curled terribly.  I had to rip out my modified brim and go back to the as-written one — which, you can see, worked perfectly.

I’m very pleased with my ribbon and button! Both found at Jo-Anns.
