Continual Round:  Instead of joining, work a single crochet in top of the first stitch. Working a continual round will eliminate the unsightly seam that occurs with joining a round.

Yarn Marker: A yarn marker is used to identify the first/last stitch of each round. This is so you have an idea when to change rounds with your instructions.  I use left over yarn tails, which are…

Materials
Size I/5.5 mm crochet hook
4 ply yarn worsted weight - 2 colors
9-12 Wraps per inch/2.5 CM
Tapestry Needle

In the tutorial, I worked the yarn by passing one color to the front and the other color to the back.  Later in the hat I did notice that the strand passed to the front may show a little more than it being passed to the back.  You can decide if you want to keep the yarn separated, passing one to the front and one to the back or pass both to the back.  You will need to unwind your yarn every so often by passing both to the back.

The chain 1 will not count as a stitch, only the step up.

Chain 16, join.

Round 1: Work 16 double crochet through the chain, join with the beginning chain.

The double crochet will be worked between each stitch.

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
