When I first discovered the ribbing stitch it felt like a revelation. I love to crochet but sometimes my pieces (especially my hats) had serious knit – envy. Once I incorporated the ribbing stitch I feel like we can easily keep up. The weather finally got cooler here and I wanted to design something extra warm. Keep reading for the crochet ribbed brim tutorial. Starting your hat with this will keep your ears nice and toasty! I used Lion Brand’s Wool Ease for my newest hat design and the wool content really adds to the warmth as well. Even though the hat is not for him, I think you can see that my little man approves 🙂
How to crochet a knit look brim
First you will start off determining the height you’d like your brim to be. Remember that the brim will be folded in half.
I wanted a rather long brim so I started with a ch 21
Next you will work the ribbing stitch. This is either a sc or hdc in the back loop. See this tutorial for picture details!
Determine your desired width and make as many rows as you need for your hat.
Once you’ve reached your desired length, slst the two ends together to close the brim
Now fold your brim in half and sc both sides together
Work one sc per sc row of brim. Look at the picture to see where to put your stitches.
Do this all the way around, close with a slip stitch into your first sc and enjoy your cozy ears.
