Mauna Kea begins with the crochet brim, worked from side to side, fastened off, then seamed into a ring. The rise of the hat is worked along the side edge of the brim, back and forth, joining the end of the round to the beginning, then turning. One decrease round is worked toward the crown of the hat, then stitches are gathered to join at the top.
