I knit a hat for a friend and the brim is a bit wobbly. I'm sure this is due to the fact that I didn't knit the bottom ribbing long enough and the braided cable is scrunching the little ribbing I do have.


So my question is this,

Am I better off picking up stitches and continuing the brim in the same pattern or reversing the pattern so that the new sts are opposite?

Will one way provide more stability than the other?

if anyone can recommend a nice cast-off I'd be super stoked seeing as I've never knit top down on a hat

thanks!
