Crochet Lightening McQueen Hat Pattern

Hey, hey!
Happy Monday!!
 
So if you’ve been following along on Facebook then you know that I have recently learned to crochet.  It’s been really fun and kind of addicting!  
 
What’s super cute is that my kids think that I can do anything and give me off-the-wall requests.  The first thing that Cam asked for when he noticed me making hats, was a red one, like Lightening McQueen.  He even tried to sneak red yarn into our buggy on a few shopping trips!  The poor boy really.  I’m one of those moms ~ that doesn’t buy her kids licensed stuff ~ you know Thomas the Tank Engine and Bob the Builder shoes/shirts/shorts.  I just don’t like the look.  Is that weird?
 
Anyway Cameron was quite insistent that I make him a Lightening McQueen hat that has four tires.  And I started to feel bad about the whole no licensed thing and decided to give it a shot.  This PIN was my inspiration.
I followed this video to create my beanie and this video to make the brim.
Then I winged the rest.  
Here’s my pattern:
