    Crocheting a brim/bill

    I tried! it works.:yayHere's what I did: I decided how wide I wanted the brim to be. I did post hdc for all those stitches. On the next row I did sc, 2sc in the front loop of the stitches on the previous row. I did 2sc tog at the beginning and end of each row. I continued this till the brim was the length I wanted. I fasten off the yarn. I repeated what I did on the the back loop of all the stitches. I inserted a piece of plastic canvas and sc both together SC around entire hat. Sorry I don't have a camera to show you a pic of the caps I made, but it worked out really well. Thanks to all for your suggestions.

    Crocheting a brim/bill

    Of course, I had so much to do this weekend that I didn't have time to try to make a brim. Thanks Aggie May for your input. But when you wrote"Then I work the same number of rows {decreasing} 1 stitch at each end until I get back to the number I had after my first row" I guess you meant "increasing" not "decreasing" right? I think I'll try yor way. What I think I'll do is work the first brim in the front loop stitches. Then when I get to the lenght. Then go back and work another into the back loops. I'll still have 2 brims to sew together but then I will insert the plastic canvas and join both pieces together by single crochet.

    Crocheting a brim/bill

    Thanks for your response.Could you please answer 2 questions: I am want to try to decrease 2 stitches per row.Where do you normally place the decreases at the end of the row or in the middle? What do you recommend as far as the width of the brim? Thanks again for all your help..

    Crocheting a brim/bill

    I don't actaully follow a pattern when doing a hat. Does anyone have any tips/suggesstions on how to crochet a brim to a hat? I don't want it too pointy and want to do it double so that I can add plastic canvas to make it stiff. Any suggestions would be helpful as I am at my wits end and can't seem to figure out how to adapt the brim patterns that are already out there to my needs. Thanks,
