This cap will be worked with two colors at the same time.  

Optional Stitch Effect:The image shows an effect for working 7 double crochet and 7 single crochet staggering the stitches to create a wave.  I worked this after the increase rounds were over. If you want to work this on the smaller hats it can be done as well. I will use round 9 with 50 stitches as the example.  You would work 5 double crochet, 5 single crochet, staggering the stitches.

There are various places where you can stop to make smaller caps.  I have provided a size estimate for the yarn I am using
