Reflective Front Post Beanie Free Crochet Pattern

Reflective Front Post Beanie Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of
 Posh Pooch Designs
We have just re-tested, re-edited, and updated
 This Crochet Pattern
And Added a Brand New Video

I made This hat for my  handsome Son.
 He likes to work on his Jeeps at night, as well as, play around
 with his Jeeps up in the mountains,
The reflective yarn, will Reflect off Headlights, so other Jeeps 
and vehicles will see him.
I am trying to keep Him safe!
Isn't He a handsome model???
These pictures where taken right off my back deck.
 You can see it was snowing and very cold.

You can also use Reg. WW(4) or Cotton for this Hat Pattern.
It works up nicely using the Same Crochet Hook, the I / 5.5 MM.
