I am looking for hat patterns using Size 8 or 9 straight needles and regualar yarn like Caron Simply Soft.

If anyone knows where I can find such patterns please let me know.

Thank you.

www.knittingpatterncentral.com is a good place to look for patterns. I'm sure you can find one that'll work.

This hat (http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/kwe-ellensHat.html) from LionBrand uses worsted weight (like Caron Simply Soft) and can be made with size 8 straight needles. It's a very easy pattern - 1 1/2 to 2 inches of ribbing, several inches of stockinette, then decrease to the end and seam it up.

You could check out the Knitty Tychus (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer05/PATTtychus.html). It's a fun hat. The pattern calls for a double strand of acrylic worsted weight yarn, so the Caron should work great.

It says size 9 needle, but that makes a pretty big hat, plus this pattern has TONS of stretch, so if you use the 8's and it's a little smaller, it should still stretch to fit just fine. It works up pretty fast too!

I've just made two of these Lavender Hats (http://scrumptiousliving.wordpress.com/scrumptious-patterns/lavender-hat/) You can see then on my Flickr. They don't have the top leaves yet. I'm thinking about doing felted leaves. They go really fast on size 8 US needles.

Headhuggers.org has several good basic hat patterns.

That Lavender hat is SO PRETTY! What a great job and idea. I love it, it's so different.

Well, I don't know what size needle (I forgot) but I'm just finishing up this hat at Drops. I really liked the complete simplicity of it, it's just ribbed right up to the top and then two rows of k2tog. I haven't finished the top so I don't how it's going to turn out, I might even change the top but have a look anyhow. It's quite nice and different. Stretchy too.
