More Knit Hats

I've finished 3 more hats, and I bought some yarn yesterday to make a fourth. I'm making all these hats for my husband's grandma. She is going through chemo right now and just loved the hat I made her for Christmas. She gave me money to make her some more hats. I love to knit, so it didn't take much to talk me into making more.
The pattern for these hats vary slightly. I used a size 8 needle for most of them and I casted on about 70 (depending on the gauge I sometimes did more or less). I made the hats to fit a 24 inch around head. I did a ribbing for two inches, then knit all around (in the circular). I made it to measure 8 inches tall from the bottom and started finishing as follows:
Round 1: k5, k2tog
Round 2: knit
Round 3: k4, k2tog
Round 4: knit
Round 5: k3, k2tog
Round 6: knit
Round 7: k2, k2tog
Round 8: knit
Round 9: k1, K2tog
Round 10:knit
Round 11: k2tog
Leave a long tall of extra yarn and put it through the remaining stitches with either a crochet hook or tapestry needle. Pull tight to close the hole and weave in all your ends.

This is a very basic hat pattern and can be played around with a bit for fun.
