For cap with Fold-up Brim:
For cap with Rolled Brim:
If making cap with multiple-colored 'flower' (See sample cap in photo) -
Change to color B (I generally use green to make it look like 'leaves' or 'petals' beneath the 'flower'.) . Knit each st for about 1".
Change to color C (I generally use a bright 'flower' color'.) Knit each st for about 1".
Change to color D. Knit one row. Cast off.
With tapestry needle and about 15" piece of color B or C, weave yarn through cap, weaving in and out along every knit st around cap...along line of change from Color B to Color C. Pull yarn tight and tie in secure knot. Pull yarn ends to inside of cap and retie in secure knot. Cut ends.
If making cap with single colored 'flower' (See sample cap in photos) -
Continue knitting in main color until about 6" above cast on row.
