Magic Loop Roll Brim Hat Recipe

With size 8 circular needle long enough for magic loop method, cast on 55(66, 77, 88, 99) stitches. Divide stitches for magic loop 1 circular needle method. Join without twisting.

Knit around for 5 (6, 6.5, 7, 8) inches.

Since the stitch count is divisible by eleven no matter what size you are making, you will do a easy to remember decrease to create the crown on all sizes.

*Knit 9 (knit 2 together), repeat from * across both needles.
*Knit 8 (knit 2 together), repeat from * across both needles.
Continue to knit one less stitch before the knit 2 together each round until there are 5(6, 7, 8, 9) stitches left.

Cut off yarn leaving a 8" tail and weave that through the remaining stitches on needle to gather top. Work in ends.
