This pattern is available for free.

Knitted on 5.5mm needles with only one ball of RYC Soft tweed, it was a real quickie. The ball band suggested 12sts/10cm (4in) tension on 8mm needles, but whichever size needles I tried I got exactly the same tension of 16sts/ 10cm. Have no idea why. The hat is worked in a round bottom up, the crown is worked separately from the centre and then they are joined together with 3 needle bind off. The larger hats would need one ball and an extra 10 yards of yarn to finish.
