I promise that the brim is easy!  I watched the "Picking up stitches" video on KnittingHelp (the best online resource for knitting instruction IMHO) and was on my way to glory.

A note about yarn substitutions: This pattern is very forgiving on yarn subs.  I have used two different worsted weight yarns (a tweed and KnitPicks' Wool of the Andes), and followed the pattern needle sizing both times.  Both worked out great.  Any wortsed weight yarn should be easy to use without messing with the pattern.

Thanks for the gauge advice- I'm definitely making this hat now.
Course that means it's on my long 'to knit' list- but it's near the top I swear Smiley
