DIY Crochet Brim – Stretchy Brim Tutorial

This video is a precursor to a lot of my 100 days of beanies videos.  This is a basic step in making some beanies that are worked from the brim up.  You can follow along with me as I complete my 100 beanie challenge, where I share with you a unique crochet beanie pattern every day for 100 days.
This brim can be doubled up to make an extra warm double brim, could be used as a headband by itself, and could also be a  great building block to create your own beanie patterns.
