Getting Started:
This pattern uses a hook that is much smaller than would normally be used for this yarn. This is done to create a stiffer fabric so that the hat stands up on its own and the brim is not too floppy.

Optional: If you would like the brim to be even stiffer, you can add in brimlock around the hat, making the last round of the brim over top of the brimlock. You can order brimlock here and joiners here.
