 *Note: this pattern has a precursor video: How to Crochet a Beanie Brim:
Create a brim that is 25 st deep and roughly 18’’ wide and connect the two side edges together (as shown in brim making tutorial).  
Row 1: Fold brim in half lengthwise (this will create a double brim), and using st markers or scrap pieces of yarn, section off your brim into four even sections.  SL st into corresponding st on the opposite edge and CH 2.  Crocheting into both edges of the brim, place 80 DC (20 DC in each section, and not counting the CH 2), crocheting the two edges together while you do so.  
Row 2: Following a continuous loop pattern, place 1 FRONT POST st around CH 2 st from previous row.  Place 1 BACK POST st around st 2.  Continue alternating between front and back post stitches for the rest of the row.  You should end on a front post st.
Rows 3 – 18: Continue following the same alternating pattern for this row as well.  You will notice that in every front post st from the previous row, you will not be placing a back post st, and in every back post st from the previous row, you will now be placing a front post st.  
Cut and tie off yarn.
Cut a strand of yarn ~ 2 feet in length and weave it around the top edge of your beanie (weaving it every inch or two).  Cinch the two ends of your strand and tie them tightly together.
