Crochet cap with bill, "Johnny Reb"

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. Purchase the e-pattern from Bandana Heads

Crochet cap with brim, Johnny Reb style

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.
