Hat conversion question

i started a basic rolled brim hat (CO 88 stitches, work in st st until you’re done kinda deal) but i was thinking of adding cables… can i just stop doing the roll brim at 2 inches and then convert it to this cabled pattern beginning at the start pattern section or will i screw something up. i would like to retain the rolled brim, otherwise i would just start over.

thanks!

I don’t see why not. :shrug: The cast on is the same so it should be just fine.
