I have been crocheting for 70 years and found the instructions for the Backtrack Beanie very easy. However, the instructions for the brim on the beanie were very difficult to understand.

I have made this hat several times in all ranges of sizes. It's a quick crochet and makes up beautifully. Everyone I have made it for really loves it. I highly recommend this pattern to every crocheter!
