Have you ever tried knitting with llama yarn? The llama fiber is hollow, making it’s light-weigh and also quiet warm and soft when you wear it. This Plymouth DFM baby llama glow has a silver metallic mix with it, creating a super shimmer look. Also the best part of it, is that you could create any shade you like by using food color or yarn dye. Please note that the original color is not pure white, it’s more like greyish white to me.

Pattern Note:
I’m using knotted edge for the edge stitch. It’s simple, just knit the first and last stitch in each row.
You could use any cast-on method you preferred. I put my method here just for your reference. This method could create a more rounded edge of the brim.
