What a great pattern, simple, easy to construct, and it looks great. I am just now starting my decreases and have about 4 hours in it so far. I am new to knitting, this is my 3rd hat and my 3rd in-the-round project. I did make a big mistake out of the gates; I did not realize that a stockingette stitch is done differently on round needles than on straight... so my first 3 inches were done with a knit row, a perl row, etc. The effect however, may work out really created a thicker bottom part which I think is going to make that rolled brim really nice. For other newbees looking at this pattern, if you are working in the round, you get a stockingette just by knitting each row over and over (thank you YouTube!). I built this one for a friend with a small head and very short hair, so I used the smallest pattern size. When I make the next one, I will definitely go up to the middle-size. Thank you for the pattern, I cannot wait to make another one.

Love this hat, it's just what I have been looking for. Thank you so much.
