Just so you know this, your hat wasn't a lost thing with taking it off flat. It still could have been a hat, and a non rolling brimmed one also.
You just take a strand of yarn and gather the other side. Or if you like the roll or needed it for some reason you take that yarn and continue by gathering the end you cast off flat.
You just take the yarn weave it through the stitches till you meet the other end, pull to gather, tie off, hide ends and voila, a hat. This is something I have done in crochet for years and years. I like doing flat hats, seaming them up the back and gathering them.

I finishished the hat as if I were finishing a scarf. Rather than try to backtrack and put everything back on the loom, I left it alone. I made two thick iCords and sewed them on using the same yarn. It's really cute the way it is but I'd like to sew in a lining and zipper but I don't know how.
