After making a new adult visor for sale, I took another look at my visor and decided to redo it. It was loosely crocheted and just looked messy to me. I have improved and augmented the pattern to better suit my crocheting style since I made this. Instead of starting the brim right after finishing the band, I fastened it off. I then count half of the total stitch count from the begining stitch in this case it was 40 stitches. I place a stitch marker there. I then counted 18 stitches to the right of that marker. It is half of the total stitch count of 36 for the first row of the brim. Doing this puts the brim in the middle of the band, so it is not right next to your seam from slip stitching for the next round.
It places the seam at the back of the visor rather then the side. Like in my original visor.
I also made the band only 5 rows instead of the 7 called for in the Adult visor. I do this because I then single crochet a round the top with a trim color. After I finish the brim I single crochet a round it and the bottom of the band with another trim color. So I still get 7 rounds, just not all Half Double crochet.
I like my Makeover better it has a smaller circumference so it fits more snuggly. The band is narrower so it doesn’t cover half the back of my head. The Original looks more pinkish because of the contrast color. The MakeOver the blue is brought out more because of the blue trim color. I thought that was neato.
