Adult Black Beanie in Rhythm - Free Crochet 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 my Adult Large Basic Beanie (a free crochet pattern) using Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Black for the beanie.
This yarn mess made this project quite a challenge! Geez!

Now, onto the music notes...

Materials:
     - Small amount of worsted weight yarn - I used Gray in Red Heart Super Saver
     - Size H8/5mm Crochet Hook
     - #18 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends and Sewing on Music Notes

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

Pattern:

LEFT NOTE
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.
Fasten off with long tail for sewing.

CENTER NOTE
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 13, sl st in 2nd CH from hook and down skipping the last one, sl st in next DC of circle.
Fasten off with long tail for sewing.

RIGHT NOTE
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 10, sl st in 2nd CH from hook and down skipping the last one, sl st in next DC of circle.
Fasten off with long tail for sewing.

Swoop
CH 27. SC in 2nd CH and across. CH 1, turn.
Sl st in 2nd CH and across but leave last 4 unworked.
Fasten off with long tail for sewing.

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.
