The April hat is worked in the round from the bottom up. The ribbing on the brim is worked in a faux cable pattern with twisted stitches. There is an increase row worked before beginning the body of the hat, which creates a beret shape. The Puff Stitch pattern is worked with a crochet hook, inserting the hook into the space between stitches a few rows below, and creating floats on the right side of the work. The stitch takes a bit of practice, but is fun to do!
