The edges of the visor can be left as is, or pick up and knit 2 stitches for every 3 rows across the top, then bind off. Repeat across the bottom. Another option is to crochet the edge.


Weave in any loose ends. Attach the visor by stitching through the buttons to hold it in place. Stitch on the blade, leaving enough room at the front of the head so the visor can sit between the front band and end of the blade. Block the hat over a balloon or other round object.
