Any number is lucky in this hat; knit the brim to fit and take the numbers from there!
I'm excessively fond of I-cord edged garter stitch (thank you, Elizabeth Zimmermann). It is so elegant, warm and elastic, and this fun little hat or headband makes the most of it.
An option for grafting the beginning and end of the brim together has been given for the questing knitter. It is possible, with a little practice, to achieve a perfect invisible join which adds to the elegance.
The hat may be knit simply, or further enhanced with a striped brim, lining, variable depth brim or earflaps. This hat is ideal for using up small quantities of lovely yarn.
Three technique videos for this pattern are available on YouTube: Knitting up new stitches, Perfect graft of I-cord edged garter stitch, I-cord trimmed striped Intarsia band.
