Crochet Combo Hat

I have been working with this beanie hat pattern I came across here on crochet ville someone suggested and I have (taken 2 patterns the granny style hat and the beanie and merged them for a better fit still need to tweak but it's looking better :O)

The 2 pink hats one is made with Worsted Weight RHSS Yarn and the lighter pink is made with Caron Simply Soft Yarn...using the
beanie pattern

The Granny style (in off white and purple) is a combo of
this pattern and the beanie pattern so what do you guys think of the new pattern combo??? the reasons I like this combo is the hat fits alot better then then one I did previously that seemed too big on me and yesterday I FROGGED 4 hats trying to get the original to not be so huge on my 22 inch head even with at I or an H hook still looked weird/too big on my head I prefer a hat that doesn't just sit on your head I prefer a hat that will stay on your head..

You Tube Beanie Part 2

I have been whipping up lots of hats to donate this winter as well as a few right as I have a few requests..
Here are 2 more girly colored hats done in this same pattern...I do the hats in 2 different sizes 20-21 and 22-23 size they stretch very well for people who may or may not have hair... the hats work up quick but they also use about 2 oz of yarn. I plan to work one today in cotton to see how it compares to the acrylic in that it stretches enough and fits well..

You Tube Video Beanie Pattern

I made these 2 hats as well trying out a new pattern found here via a video the reason I wanted to try this it was a one pattern should fit all just changing the hook or yarn type..:O) I needed to use a larger hook for adults female/male size 22-23 I used size L crochet hook since I must crochet tight when using Worst Weight Yarn (4 ply yarn) I did the Avocado Green Hat and but if I used Bulky/Chunky Yarn example Lion Brand Yarn ( hometown USA) Bulky (black hat) could use the K hook....Here is a few pictures....what I liked about the pattern is it was nice and stretchy :O) the black one is nice and THICK aka warm for winter...
