Johnny Reb is a unisex fitted cap-style hat with a shady bill inspired by the caps worn by the legendary Confederate soldiers who fought in the American civil war.
The crochet cap is worked in the round for a seamless, smooth finish.
Double crochet post stitches worked around stitches of the previous round create an interesting knit-like texture and make the finished fabric more flexible and comfortable than regular crochet stitches.
The comprehensive worksheet format of this crochet e-pattern features a check your work column to help you identify any mistakes as soon as they happen.
Instructions for the bill are supported by a stitch chart for quick reference.
Definitions are provided for all crochet terms and procedures used in the e-pattern.
Put your stash to good work this holiday season. You will need 3 x 50g of DK or 8 ply woolen yarn to make one Johnny Reb cap for yourself or a friend. This pattern will be available soon at Bandana Heads on Etsy.
