pattern notes

  • This pattern is worked in 3 sections and in the following order; the crown, the squares and the brim.
  • For the crown and brim, you will be working in rounds, therefore you will not be joining to move to the next round.
  • Move your stitch markers up with each round using the different colour stitch marker as your ‘BOR’ (Beginning of row).
  • Lastly, The squares will be worked with the wrong side facing, so please be mindful of this when it comes to joining.
