Fasten off yarn leaving a long tail for sewing.

Fold brim in half toward the right side of the hat. Sew the long edge of the brim in place to the main portion of the hat. Do not fold the brim under as it will cause the visor to fall in your eyes.

After the brim is sewn down, attach yarn to one side of it. Work sc sts around the edge of the visor to hold material together and smooth over the stepped look of the sts. If your edges still look jagged after one row you can work a second row of sc.

Fasten off yarn and weave in all ends.
