After receiving a custom request for the Reflective Cody Beanie, I set about redesigning it with a bill and messy bun alterations. Today I am going to share with you the pattern for these variations!
Adding a Messy Bun & Bill to the Reflective Cody Beanie
Messy Bun Variation
The Messy Bun variation is worked following the instructions for the beanie until Round 14 (see original pattern). Instead, for Round 14, work pattern below.
Round 14: sl st in each hdc around
Follow instructions for beanie with or without Messy Bun variation. Use hook size I/5.50mm for bill.
To add a bill, turn the band of the beanie up and join yarn in any stitch of Round 1 from the inside, trying to keep the seam of the beanie in the back.
Row 1: ch 1, sc in next 28 sc, leave remaining sc unworked: 28 sc
Row 2: turn, sl st in first sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sl st in last sc: 26 sc
Row 3 – 8: turn, sl st in first sc, sc to last sc, sl st in last sc: 14 sc
Join yarn in same st as first join for bill, sc along side of bill, sc across next 3 sc of Row 8, hdc in next 6 sc, sc across and down side, sl st in last sc.
And there you have it! A couple of variations for an average beanie! Use Red Hearts Reflective yarn or any other bulky weight yarn to crochet this hat.
