Quick to knit. Super easy pattern for beginners!

- Knitting sewing needle
Step 2: Let's Get Started!
Easy (Level 2)
Quick to knit - used some left over wool from other projects. Super easy pattern for beginners.
If you do not like the rolled brim, you can easily modify the pattern and knit a ribbing instead.
I made a few changes from the pattern. Used same size needle all the way to the end. Cast on more stitches to make it bigger and slouchier. I cast on 40-45 stitches. (you can always check you gauge by knitting a swatch first) Knit in the round for approx 7-8 inches. Knit 2 together until you can no longer knit, few stitches left. Break yarn, leaving a long yarn tail. Thread yarn tail through remaining stitches and pull to gather. Sew and weave ends.
