I have a question about “At this point hat measures 20 cm (when the brim is folded).” I have three sets of cable design as your photo shows. I made my brim 6″ and it is 3″ folded. At this point, my hat is just 16 cm. I plan to add one more set of cable rounds 1-8 and then I think it will be at 20cm.
