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. The pattern is available at Bandana Heads on Etsy.

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. Buy your pattern today at Bandana Heads on Etsy.
