 *Note: this pattern has a precursor video: How to Crochet a Beanie Brim:
Row 1: Create a brim that is 25 st deep and roughly 18’’ wide.  Cut and tie off yarn  Don’t connect the two edges of the brim.  Divide brim into 4 even sections.  Attach next color of yarn to crochet hook and place 1 DC in one of the edges.  Place 80 DC st evenly along the edge of the brim, with the goal of placing 20 DC in each section.  Cut and tie off yarn.
Row 2: Attach next color of yarn to crochet hook, and working around the posts from the previous row, place 1 FRONT POST st around 1st DC st.  Then alternate between FRONT and BACK post st for the entire row.  Cut and tie off yarn.
Row 3: Attach next color of yarn to crochet hook, and alternate between FRONT and BACK post stitches, but make sure that you are working these opposite of your previous row.  So, in every FRONT POST st, place a BACK POST st, and visa versa for your BACK POST stitches.
Rows 4 – 16: Repeat Row 3.
Cut two strands of yarn.  With one, weave the brim edges together, making sure you are weaving under the entire stitch on both edges.  Tie off both edges of your brim.  Tie like-colored tails together along the remaining edge of the beanie, making sure the double knot them.  With the other strand of yarn, weave along the top edge of the beanie, placing your weave about every inch or two, then cinch the two strand edges together so that the top of the beanie is drawn together and secure the two strand edges with several knots.  Cut all tails short and turn inside out.  Fold brim in half lengthwise and make sure you hide your tail inside the fold.
