For an option, attach white for Row 26, with a sc ch 1, and then sc, ch 1 ea st around, for a scallopy edging...or sc, *ch 2, picot* ea seach stitch around for a picoted edging. (**picot= ch 2, sl st into 1st ch).

If you want a bigger brim, just add rows, increasing as I've done....but the more rows, the floppier the brim will be if you keep addadding, and you need to check so you don't get it so large it falls into the face.

Many options to decorate a bit more...just use your imagination.
