Crochet shimmery ribbed newsboy hat

This one is a simple ribbed newsboy hat crochet pattern with shimmery surface crochet . Just love the idea of playing with the ribbed lines as I did with the Icy cactus amigurumi.

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc for every first dc of each row, so just choose your best technique.
