Tweed Hats
I use this pattern for charity hats.These were all made using leftovers from other projects and fit heads 20"-24".

You'll Need:
Approximately 4 oz of leftover yarn,"J" hook.
Gauge:5 hdc=2"
Note:Hats are made in one of the following ways:
        1 strand chunky yarn
         1 strand worsted,1 strand sport,held together
        Experiment with your colors.

To Make:
Mark beg of rounds.
Rnd 1:Ch 2,work 8 sc in second ch from hook(8 sc).
Rnd 2:Work 2 hdc in each sc around(16 hdc).
Rnd 3:1 hdc in next st,2 hdc in next st around(24 hdc).
Rnd 4:2 hdc in next st,hdc in each of next 2 st around(32 hdc).
Rnd 5:Hdc in each of next 3 st,2 hdc in next st(40 hdc).
Rnd 6:2 hdc in next st,hdc in each of next 7 st around(45 hdc).
Rnd 7-18:work hdc in each st around(45 hdc).

Now you have options.You can continue with the colors you are using,making 3 rows of sc.Fasten off,weave in ends.
