Striped Elf Hat Pattern

I made this hat for my son to wear to “Hat Day” at school. I was asked about the pattern, and since I didn’t follow a pattern I said I would write up what I did. So here it is. Please share with me if you use the pattern. I would love to see how it turns out! On the down side, as this hat is hot off the hook today, so is the pattern. It hasn’t been tested yet. If you find something that doesn’t quite make sense, or any other issue, feel free to contact me!  This size is large enough to fit a female adult, but fits loosely but not too loose on my 10 year old.
Happy Crocheting!

Striped Elf Hat
By Sheri Goad
(Edited to Add: The fur around the brim is created by using a combined strand of Red Heart White and Bernat Boa in white. I have also changed the last line. I used 3 rows of the white for the brim. I had only put down two. It now reads Row 64-66.)
