Shaping

To shape your hat… With your hands on the inside of the hat, slightly press in an outward motion with each hand in an opposite direction…  Move around the inside of your hat slightly stretching it… Next place the hat on your head and slightly pull the brim in an outward direction with the middle rows of the brim… Moving around the brim until the size and shape are suitable.  To see a visual tutorial you can watch my Facebook Live Video titled Summer 2016 CAL… Week 2 Chat!  

Adjusting the Brim Size

If you would like to make the brim wider add additional rows after row 17. Then continue with the rest of the pattern.
