EMBELLISHMENTS
you can use a button to the front of the hat which can be used to fasten the front of the brim to hold it up. The DC stitches can be used as a button hole.
You could weave a ribbon in and out through the DC Stitches for a pretty girly look.
You can also add crochet flowers or rosettes. I will add the pattern for the large rosettes shown on the hat in my next blog post.
