Woman's winter beanie - crochet pattern from "Army of owls" - also name the Kay hat

Beanie or cloche hat size is 9" height x 10" width of base or 23cm height x 25.5cm width of base.  This beanie (Kay Hat) will fit a head  circumference of 20" to 22.5" OR 51cm to 57cm, it has quite a bit of stretch as I crochet quite loosely, so it should feel cozy.  The bottom edge of beanie will roll up slightly, 0.5" depending on how long it goes onto your head. Bottom of beanie can be rolled up a bit if it is longer than you need.

Crochet hook used: 5.5mm for crown and body.  Then 5mm for the bottom and brim.
Stitches used: chain, crossed, crab stitches for the edge of beanie, single crochet and double crochet.

Beanie or cloche hat is made of 8 ply 100% soft quality acrylic yarn in three colour stripes as shown here, IVORY, WINE RED and GREY.
Beanie is ready made and now in stock.  READY TO BE SHIPPED.

Finished size, laid flat (for adult woman small head size):
20" circumference (unstretched)
6" diammeter for the crown/top of hat
9" height from top of crown to bottom brim of beanie.
Beanie will roll slightly as shown on picture.  But it may be just brimless for those with slightly larger head/face frame.
