Using the circular needle, cast on 96 sts and work 1 row of ribbing in the round: *k1, p1*, repeat from * to * to end of round. Begin the fisherman's rib in the round:

Round 1: *k1, yo and slip the purl st*, repeat from * to * to end of round.

Round 2: *k1, purl the next st together with the yarn over*, repeat from * to *.  Keep repeating rows 1–2.

When the piece measures 24 cm and you have just worked row 2 of the fisherman's rib, switch to working stockinette st in the round and decrease 1 st on the first round = 95 sts.

When the stockinette stitch section measures 19 cm, begin the decreases:

1st decrease round: *k2tog, k3*, repeat from * to * to end of round = 76 sts. Knit two rounds.

2nd decrease round: *k2tog, k2*, repeat from * to * to end of round = 57 sts. Knit one round.

3rd decrease round: *k2tog, k1*, repeat from * to * to end of round = 38 sts.

4th decrease round: k2tog, repeat to end of round = 19 sts.

5th decrease round: k1, *k2tog*, repeat from * to * to end of round = 10 sts.

 

Break the yarn, pull it through the remaining stitches, and pull tightly to close the hole. Securely weave in the yarn ends on the WS.

Fold the brim twice.
