Miles and miles and miles

I love a deep brim.  Well wait.  I love wearing a deep brim.  It’s cozy, it looks adorable (if I do say so myself), and it lets you fine tune the height of the hat if you’re having a particularly poufy hair day (look, I have rather willful hair, it’s best to plan around it).

Tragically, wearing a deep brim does mean you must first knit a deep brim.  I’m less enamored of that bit.  But by jove I have knit enough hats with skimpy brims to know better.

I want a full five inches of brim at a minimum (five and a half or even six is better…go big or go home).  Come January, I will be absolutely delighted I bothered.  Even if I am downright surly about it now.
