Okay, I'm working on another roll brim hat, this one for the dh.
Here's my query: how can I control the amount that the stockinette rolls? Can I knit about 1.5" to allow for the lovely roll brim, then do a couple of rows of ribbing to stop the roll, then knit the rest of the hat?
(Note that I do not want to tack the roll down at the point at which I want the roll to stop.)
I ask because on the hats I've done so far, the roll brims are taking over my hats! One in particular rolls up at least 4 inches--this will not do! It looks like a deformed beret!
