Crocheted Adventure Time Fiona Hat

Well, my cosplaying kid asked for another crocheted creation, but I don't watch Adventure Time.  I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into, but this was easy enough and I get to share a free pattern with you.  It straps around the chin with a crocheted button and I had the yarn stashed away.  I love projects that use up leftover yarn, don't you?  I started out with Lilana Wofsey Dohnert's Finn hat pattern on Ravelry. She's brilliant.  Then I made adjustments to make it Fiona and fit a bit more snugly.  
Materials:
Crochet Hook (Size US G-6 (4.0mm))
Yarn Worsted Weight Size 4 Medium ('Soft' recommended)
Yarn Sewing Needle
Fiberfil Batting

Abbreviations:
st: stitch
ch: chain
sl st: slip stitch
sc: single crochet
hdc: half-double crochet
dc: double crochet
tr: triple crochet
inc: increase (crochet 2 st in single st; preceeded by type of st to use, i.e. 'sc inc')
dec: decrease (make 2 st become 1; preceeded by type of st to use, i.e. 'sc dec')
x: times (i.e. 4x = 4 times)
*...*: repeat entire st sequence between *'s when called for (i.e. *2 sc, sc dec* 3x)

Button
Round 1: make a 'magic adjustable ring': make a large loop by putting the yarn tail
behind the working yarn (the yarn coming from the skein), leaving a 2" tail, then draw
the working yarn through the loop so you have one loop on the hook
Round 2: ch 2, 10 dc on ring (around the 'tail' end, not the 'working yarn' end--if you've
crocheted around the wrong part, the ring won't be able to pull tight), pull tight until the
hole in the center is closed and tie that tail off, 1 sl st into second loop of initial ch, tie off, use tails to attach button to bottom outside of right-hand strap (11 total)

This pattern hasn't been tested by anyone, so if you try it out, I would love to see it and be sure to let me know if there are any errors.  I hope you enjoy it!
