On first row (= RS) work rib as follows: 1 edge st (worked in stockinette st until finished measurements), * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 edge st (worked in garter st until finished measurements). Insert a marker at the end of 1st row = top of hat - See A in fig. 1 (bottom edge of hat = C in fig. 1 = at beg of 1st row). Note: fig. 1 shows then hat when it's been folded. Continue in rib with 1 edge st in each side like this until piece measures 26-27 cm / 10 1/4''-10½". Now insert another marker at the end of row from RS (= mid front - See B in fig. 1).
