Center Single Crochet/Waistcoat stitch (closely resembles stockinette stitch in knitting): Work your sc in
between the V’s of the stitch from the previous round. This stitch needs to be worked in the round.
With your hook and yarn make a slip knot and chain 8,
Row 1: sc in the second ch from hook, sc in the next 6 chains, turn your work. Total 7sc
Row 2-44 (2-48, 2-52): (working in the BLO on the first 6 st) ch1, sc in BLO of the next 6 st, sc through
both loops on the last st, turn your work. Total 7sc
With your work fold the brim in half and you will now join the 7 st together from Row 1 and row 44 (48,
52) sl st matching st for st. Turn your work so the seam is on the wrong side.
