Note: 

  1. This is a one piece garment, but I have written the pattern in two sections (brim, body) to avoid confusion in row counting.
  2. Use your favorite method to change colors, as desired.
  3. Alternate yarn weights and types may be substituted to taste; always swatch firsts, and measure as you go!
