I am making the plastic bag hat by Belva Slate. I need to know how high to make the crown. Do I need to add stitches on each row and the same for the brim of the hat?

Hello Snapdragon1. I crochet summer hats from grocery plastic bags and I make the crown 4 to 4.5 inches high. Yes, you need to add stitches on each row.
