ROUND 4: * 1 sc in each of the first 3 sts, 2 sc in next st *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 30 sc.
Continue inc like this (= inc 6 sc on every round) until there are 96-102-108 sc on the round (i.e. so that for every round 1 sc more is worked between every 1 sc inc). Continue working 1 sc in every st until piece measures 10-11-12 cm / 4"-4 3/8"-4 3/4" from mid down - while AT THE SAME TIME on last round inc 3-6-9 sc evenly - READ INCREASE TIP = 99-108-117.

Turn piece and work back with 1 sc in every sc. Continue to work sc back and forth while AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 sc in each side on every other row a total of 3 times - READ DECREASE TIP = 30-34-38 sc. Cut and fasten the threads, brim measures approx. 3 cm / 1 1/8''.

EDGE:
Work an edge on hook size 3 mm / C with 2 threads Lin as follows: 1 sc at beg of round (= mid back), * ch 1, skip 1 sc, 1 sc in next st *, repeat from *-* around the entire edge of cap and brim, and finish 1 sl st in sc from beg of round.
