Free Pattern: Beanie with Bill [Revised] Updated 2/3

A lot of people noted that the original pattern for this ran a little small. I did see that it also needed to be rewritten, gauge added, etc. So, here's the revised version, if the original hasn't work for you.
Beanie with Bill, Chunky.

  2. I made this hat yesterday and it turned out perfect! The pattern was easy to follow and the hat is really great looking. At least five people will be getting one from me for Christmas this year. Thanks!

  3. Made this and the (Lg) Adult size was at least 2 inches around too big, we did confirm Guage when measured. Also used exact yarn. Loved <3 the hat but also thought brim was too long.

    1. It's slst (SLST), and it means slip stitch.

  5. Lily, this is the first and only time I've ever seen a pattern for a hat with a choice of three sized brings.
    You are one fantastic designer --- first, for coming up with this brilliant idea, and second, for implementing it so successfully. Three cheers for you!

    The brim actually brings me to my difficulty. I love the Beanie and I'd like to start it right away. However, I would like to crochet the brim (small or medium) all around the hat, not just in the front.

    So my first question is this: Do you think that would look silly? Or would it be all right? Now, I don't know if you have the time and space to answer this one, but could you please offer any advice about how I might achieve this? I mean, would it be fine if I just start and keep on going? Or is there anything special I should do?

    Keep on designing!

    With many thanks in advance ~

  6. Sorry, I meant to say, "a hat with a choice of three different sized brims." Confound that SpellChecker!
