Work body of hat into this pattern below through Round 12.  

Abbreviations: CH: Chain; HDC: half double crochet; SC: single crochet

Row 1: After joining Round 12, CH 8 (the last chain is our turning chain). Now we will work the hat in rows instead of in the round.

Row 2: SC in each of the 7 stitches across. SC into stitch in the hat body, the first open stitch (in other words, the first stitch next to the where the chain of 8 started from). CH 1.

Row 3: HDC in each stitch across. CH 1. (7 HDC)

Row 4: HDC in each stitch across. (7 HDC) Attach the row to the hat body by completing a SC2tog in the two adjacent stitches next to row 2's attachment. CH 1.

Row 5- 64: repeat row 3 and 4. This will take you around the hat to meet with Row 1. Attach the last rows to the hat body but not to row 1. (I think there were 64 rows, still not great at counting rows but just go until you reach the last stitch next to row 1.)

Row 65: HDC in each stitch across. CH 1. (7 HDC)

Row 66-75: repeat Row 65.

Row 76: HDC in 2 stitches. Chain 2. Skip 3 stitches. HDC in 2 stitches. CH 1 (4 HDC)

Row 77: HDC in 2 stitches. 3 HDC in Chain 2 space. HDC in 2 stitches. CH 1 (7 HDC)

Row 78: HDC in each stitch across. (7 HDC).

Bind off and weave in ends.

Line up the over hang of the band with the hat band and determine where the button should go based on where the buttonhole lies. Sew with yarn in place!
