Fasten off, weave in the ends.
To make the brim, join yarn to the bottom of the beanie at the seam and work in rounds.
Join main color at the seam

Love this hat! Can’t wait to start making it. Already tweeted about it 🙂
Would like to make as an adult beanie. Don’t understand if the rectangle is 20″ but the end product is 18″ is it the brim that pulls it in? So to make an adult version would need to increase the start rows to be approx 7.5″ and the rectangle to be roughly 24″? My husband wants me to try it, we both really like what it looks like just didn’t know if I could figure out the increases needed. Thanks. judy
Yes, the brim tightens it up quite a bit. And yes, you can make the rectangle larger to make a bigger beanie 🙂
Thanks. On list to try next.
Would like to make for adult do you have a pattern. Or any ideas how to increase to make for adult.
New to crocheting how can I make it larger do you have a pattern I can follow
Hi! You can add rows to make the rectangle larger 🙂
How many rows should I add to make adult size hat?
I would like to help but they don’t accept mine because I smoke and so does my husband. I don’t know what to do. How to help
Thank you for the pattern. After row 19 it states that each side should be about 6.5”. Mine is about 8” on the working side and about 5” on the other two. Adding or taking away more rows will still result in uneven sides. Should I just roll with it? Thanks!
Hi I actually made this for one of my neices and she loved it. My Aunt would like one too (we maybe fighting cancer again after her being in remission for almost 20 something years) but I’m a little confused on where or how to make it in an adult size. Please help me I want to give it to her for christmas.
Hi! You can repeat row 4 until it’s about 7.5″. Then repeat the pattern rows 21 & 22 until it’s about 21″ or 22″. Then do the decreasing rows. I hope that helps!
Yes it will! Thank you so very much!!!
