The Pattern, kinda sorta...
Slip stitch in ch 1 to create a small circle.
DC 6 around the circle (repeat 2 x or until the circle starts to bend in the slightest)
To make a flat circle, increase by dc 2x in 1 stitch, dc 1 (repeat around until flat circle and return to 1 dc in each stitch)
Repeat until you have a flat circle about 7 in diameter. Below is a you tube video on how to dc decrease.
Dc decrease once every five stitches all the way around, so dc 5, decrease (dc decrease).
Crochet once in each stitch all the way around for about 10 rows
To make the brim:
begin to increase by 2 dc in 1 stitch every other stitch for one row. so, 2 dc in 1, 1 dc in 1 (repeat around) repeat until it gets wavier or you can decrease down to 1 in each stitch again to lessen the waviness of the brim.
