I know that the most common way is to knit the edge in rib. But for this hat, I didn't...


It's not a big deal, but it is kinda annoying... Should I just unravel and re-knit the edge?

Yep, use ribbing or seed st on the edge because stockinette is going to roll. You don't need to reknit the whole thing though, cut the CO off, unravel a few rows up and reknit them back down and BO.

You could also add a row or two of single crochet or applied icord to the brim as well.  That way if you're squeamish about cutting/frogging, you can still get the brim to stop curling so much.

Another option would be to sewing a fleece liner to the inside. It will fix the rolling and will add extra warmth!  Smiley
