Crochet Adult Black Beanie in Rhythm. FREE Pattern!

I received a special request for a man's beanie. The request included a photo of three music notes with a swoop across the top, and that the hat be black with gray music notes.
After a few searches that didn't leave me anywhere but frustrated, I decided to just take it into my own hands.

I started out with the adult large size of the basic beanie pattern courtesy of Sarah of Family Bugs. I used Deborah Norville's Everyday Soft in Black for the beanie. 
I did work it in a continuous round from start to finish, adding an extra row of double crochets around, followed by a row of 'slip stitch in the next stitch, chain 1, single crochet in the same stitch, single crochet in each stitch around'. The last row is to even out the continuous round.
This yarn mess made this project quite a challenge! Geez!

The total length of the hat was 8.75". And while it was to fit the average man's head, it fits my head just fine too!
*To make for a woman's head, do not add the extra row of double crochets.

For the music notes:

Materials:
   Small amount of worsted weight yarn - I used Gray in Red Heart Super Saver
   Size H8/5mm Crochet Hook
   Tapestry Needle for weaving in ends and final attachment of music notes

Abbreviations:
   CH - Chain
   DC - Double Crochet
   SC - Single Crochet
   sl st - slip stitch

Pattern:

CH 4. Join to form ring. CH 2 (counts as DC). Make 9 DC in ring. Join.
Rnd 2: CH 1. SC in 1st DC (same as join), SC in next DC, CH 12, sl st in 2nd CH from hook and down skipping the last one, sl st in next DC of circle.

To Assemble:
I used sewing pins to help
me visual the finished look.

First I pinned down my pieces to the hat to see how it would look and get the final approval. 
I didn't really aim for any certain rows, just centered the notes as best as I could.
The left and center notes fall centered on the 13th and 14th rounds. The right note falls cented on the 11th and 12th rounds. The swoop is off centered.

Please feel free to make and sell this scarf, but please DO NOT claim this pattern on your own nor should you sell my pattern, and DO NOT re-publish my photos as your own.
