While the basic design of any hat is pretty much the same from hat to hat, you'd need to do something to make your design unique in order to call it your own.

If you use a pattern that has something very unique about it, I'd say don't sell it. If you create something that is unique itself, then it would be yours to sell and you'll feel better about it to boot.

I'd suggest starting with a basic hat design that is common to most hats, incorporate unique design features of your own, and thus create your own pattern for it.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
