Using the long tail cast on method, cast on the required number of stitches, in my case I cast on 100 stitches.
This will work as your foundation chain.Make sure that all your stitches are aligned properly before working your next row.
To create the ribbed brim, you need to work one knit stitch then one purl stitch across your first row. Repeat this for 10 more rows.
