Brim
I made a video tutorial of the brim: brim tutorial

Use white yarn and chain 9.
Round 1
Sc in 2nd st from the hook. Sc in each ch to end of chain (8 sc)
Round 2
Crochet in the back loops only: ch 1, sc in each st (8) Turn.
Round 3 / 84:
repeat round 2.
Note: if you believe your brim is long enough for the required size, you can stop. Make sure you can divide your number of stitches by 4.

Fold the sides together and join them with 8 sc.
