Center Stripe

(If you are doing team colors, you will use one color for center and the 2nd color for the trim.)
You are going to make the center stripe using a foundation double crochet, if you do not know how to make one, see my blog post about the foundation double crochet:  http://ashleydesignscorner.blogspot.com/2015/02/foundation-double-crochet-tutorial.html

3-6 Months: 11 inches long
6-12 Month: 12 inches long
1-2 Years: 13 inches long
3-10 Years: 14 inches long
you are just doing the white center stripe, finish off.  But, if you are doing team colors, after the length is reached, change colors and sc around the entire stripe and finish off and leave a long tail to sew onto the center of the helmet.        

Chin Strap
You Need Your K Hook and White Yarn 
You will follow the instructions for the double crochet foundation for the chin strap as well. 
For Each Size your will make a Double Crochet Foundation until the length listed for each size is reached:

Once the length is reached for the size you are making, you are going to follow the instructions below for each size:
Ch 6, join with a sl st into the other side of the double crochet foundation to make a loop.
Sc down the strap until you reach the other side, Ch 6, join with a sl st into the other side of the double crochet foundation to make a loop.   Sc back down the strap to the 1st ch 6.
