A is the number of rows you will need to do total for the brim. 
B is the number of rows you will do that aren't corners. 
C is the number of rows you will do between your corners
D is the number of rows you will do in black for your band at the base.  Also the number of pegs you will use for the brim.
E is the number of rows you will do after the band area at the base.
F is the number of rows you will do total for the top of the hat. 

Ex: for 36 peg loom
36 x 2= 72

Lets write up our pattern.
