Need a little help

Ok so I am getting ready to start knitting for next winter, (this will be the first time I do charity knitting, every year I do crochet because I'm much faster at it) to send off hats and scarfs to the area of Romania when I had once hoped to live. I really want a simple hat pattern, something like the hat found here I'm not really too keen on buying a pattern since this is probably going to cost me a small fortune when it comes to shipping. Any ideas? Unfortunately when I went back to get this pattern it was no longer free :/
For now I'm keeping my eyes out for really good yarn sales. I'm hoping to make 25 sets of hats and scarfs before the next winter starts, wish me luck!

Have a look at this pattern:

How about something like this, but without the cables?

It always surprises me when someone goes from giving something away to selling it.

Here are a few more options that are still free (for the moment):

yeah - especially when it's something that appears to be a basic stocking knit hat with a turned up ribbed brim. Yes - I'm sure she ut some effort into the design -'s no koolhaus

MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation

especially when the matching scarf is still free :/ I might break down and buy the pattern, so far I like it the best, but damned I really hate to do it. I had it on the old HD before it decided to go belly up.

Thanks Lars, I'll give this a go, I think I killed all brain cells I had left (well the one) doing the sock pattern, math is hard!

The "techknitting" blog site has extremely detailed and well illustrated instructions for making a "pocket hat". Good luck! -- Dan (a fellow Michigander about to freeze his butt off when he goes outside).

Try here, I have found a few useful patters here:

You've probably got your pattern already with all of these great ideas, but I thought I'd throw this site into the ring as well:

Here's her intro to the page-

"Ever wish you could find a hat pattern that's easy enough for beginning knitters (no need for a gauge swatch!), yet looks great, functions well, shows off handspun yarns beautifully, and fits without lots of fiddly measurements?"

Enjoy :)

Thanks! I think what I'm going to do is try a couple of these, and just do the easiest one in multiples :)
