Here is a picture of some hats I made a while back.
The one that looks like an apple was my first knitting in the round project. The apple hat, watermelon hat and camo hat are from an Ann Norling pattern. The yellow and black hat is part of a set that includes mittens and a neck warmer. The pattern for that one came from Knit It magazine (2002). These hats are good for beginners and fun too because they knit up fast and there is no seaming. I still enjoy knitting them as much as I did when I first learned.
