So I wrote out the pattern for the beanie. I'm not sure if it will make any sense to anyone but me so hopefully you can use it. Also let me know if you have any problems or questions. I will be glad to help you out. Please enjoy.
Size G hook
Ch 4. Join to form ring.
Rnd 1: Ch1. 14 sc in ring. Join in 1st sc.
Rnd 2: Ch 2. 2 hdc in each sc around. Join in 2nd ch on beginning ch 2.
Rnd 3 & 4: Ch 2. 1 hdc in next st. (2 hdc in next st. 1 hdc in next 2 sts.) repeat between () around. Join.
Rnd 5: Ch 2. Hdc in each st around. Join.
Rnd 6: Ch 2. Hdc in next 2 sts. (2 hdc in next st. 1 hdc in next 3 sts.) Repeat around. Join.
Rnd 7: Ch 2. Hdc in each st around. Join.
Rnd 8: Ch 2. Hdc in next 3 sts. (2 hdc in next st. 1 hdc in next 4 sts.) Repeat around. Join.
Rnd 9 & 10: Ch 2. Hdc in each st around. Join

Rnd 16: Repeat rnd 9. Join with main color.

Try on a little head at this point and see if it is long enough. The shells on the edge will only add another ½” or so.
Rnd 20: Ch1. Sc in same st as joining. (Skip next 2 sts, 6 dc in next st. Skip next 2 sts, sc in next st.) Repeat around. (You may need to do a little adjusting near the end to come out even skipping only 1 st instead of two, for example.) Join and finish off.

I mentioned that I was really into repurposing lately, and I finally took some pictures of some of the other stuff I've done. This shirt I made for Iris mostly because we didn't have any coordinating shirts for family pictures and she was the only one that didn't have anything grey. So I took one of my old long sleeved t-shirts that I don't wear anymore and made one for her. I love how it turned out, especially the ruffles on the front. You can see one of the family pictures on my other blog HERE.
This year for Christmas treats I tried my hand at making chocolate truffles. They were surprisingly easy and very yummy. I think I will have to make them more often. Let me know if you want me to post the recipe.
