After joining the last row of sc with a sl st, ch1. sc in next 28 sts.
With right side still facing you, work backwards (left to right) along the 28 sts using reverse sc in each st. Here is a video tutorial.
ch 1 and work 1 sc in next 28 sts again. ch1 and reverse sc back over brim. Repeat one more time. This will give you three rows for the brim of the hat.
Now to give it a bit of shape.
ch 1 sc2tog. sc to last 2 sts and sc2tog.
Work 4 sc evenly down the edge of the brim. sc in each st around the hat and work 4 sc evenly up the other side of the brim. Finish off with an invisible knot. Weave in ends.
I think I may consider adding a strap like on the little brimmed hat, or an ivory colored flower.
