Let the sun shine! Mesh pattern lets the air flow through, while the brim keeps the sun out of your eyes. Rounded cap with a brim and hemmed edge. Brim shape is created through geometry, tight gauge and double layers - no cardboard or plastic!
Brim photo tutorial available - email me after pattern purchase, firstname.lastname@example.org
The brim's structural integrity comes from the recommended cast on, the tight gauge, shaping, and leaving the wraps in place unless otherwise specified.
Yarn: Hat can be made in either dk weight (300 yds, 2 strands held together), or worsted weight; choose a fiber like a hemp blend, with a fairly firm hand so the hat will hold its structure
Sample was knitted in Elsebeth Lavold’s Hempathy, 34% hemp, 41% cotton, 25% modal; 50g = 140m/153yds; 2 strands held together, 2 skeins
