2 Balls of Boa
What I have done is to combine 2 yarns to make a nice 3 inch border. If you are using 2 yarns together with heavier yarn, work in number 11 needles for the first 3 inch border. Then drop the Fun Fur and just use the Bemat Boa only. Working in Stocking St. follow instructions for above hat, changing to number 9 needles after you have inc 4 sts evenly across last row. The brim comes out nice and fluffy and doesn't get rolled back. Depending on the size of hat you want, you can adjust the crown by knitting less inches anywhere from 6 to 8 1/2 inches.
