Three color messy bun beanie crochet pattern

I made video tutorials for this hat. Please turn on the subtitles if you watch them. They explain what I.m doing.

video tutorial round 5-9

Brim

I made a brim video tutorial: brim tutorial

Use white yarn and chain 9.

Row 2 Crochet in the back loops only: ch 1, sc in each st (8) Turn.
Row 3-84Repeat row 2

If you think your brim is long enough for the required size, you can stop. Make sure you can divide your number of stitches by four.

Brim, row 1 – 84

Fold the sides together and join them with 8 sc.

Turn the brim around so the seem is on the inside. Don’t cut the yarn, but continue.
