Chunky beanie with textured brim

This hat is really quick and easy. i used chunky weight yarn for the hat in the picture but you can use 2 strands of worsted weight together and the hat is almost exactly the same (just slightly smaller from my experience)
Begin with a magic circle
Round 1: Ch3, dc 11 more times around circle, join.
Round 2: Ch3, dc in same stitch as joining, 2dc in each stitch around. join.
Round 3: ch3, dc in same stitch as joining, *dc in next stitch, 2 dc in following stitch, repeat from * around, join.
Round 4: Ch3, dc in same stitch as joining, *dc in next 2 stitches, 2dc in following stitch, repeat from * around, join
Round 5: Ch3, dc in same stitch as joining, *dc in next 4 stitches, 2dc in following stitch, repeat from * around, join.
Round 6: Ch3, dc in same stitch as joining, *dc in next 6 stitches, 2dc in following stitch. Repeat from * around, join.
Rounds 7-10: Ch3, dc in each stitch around, ,join.
Rounds 11-15: Ch3, *fphdc in next stitch, bphdc in following. repeat from * around, join.
Weave in ends and enjoy! You are welcome to sell hats you've made with this pattern if you so choose but please credit me for the pattern. Thank you.

If you are not familiar with magic circles, fphdc's, bphdc's or dc's, I highly recommend the video tutorials by Teresa on youtube. Here is a link to her channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/tjw1963
