Thank you Nicole!
I kind of adapted different patterns since I couldn't find a pattern using size 8 needles and a double strand of worsted weight yarn. Most of the hats I cast on 60 stitches, some are 66 stitches. Then I just did ribbing for 8 or 10 rounds, or in the case of the hat with the folded ribbing, I did the ribbing for about 4 inches. Then I switched to stockinette stitch until the hat measured 5.5 to 6 inches. Did decreases starting with knit 8, K2tog around, then knit a round, then knit 7, k2tog around, then knit a round, knit 6, k2tog, etc., until I got down to knit 1, k2tog. Then the next round I k2tog and pulled the tail through the remaining stitches.
I actually did all of them the same except for the beginning - some are rolled brim (just knitting in the round) but the rest is the same. I used a size 8 16 inch circular needle and then switched to dpn when I had to.
Hope that all made sense and answered your question!!! I can't wait to finish the rest of the hats and send them up your way!!!
