Easy Knitted Hat

I knit these hats for family and friends and to donate to the homeless. I'm a volunteer for and we help homeless folks to get into homes and jobs. But my family loves these hats and my granddaughters just asked me yesterday to knit them each one in a bright color. The first size of 80 stitches will fit a woman or child, and the 90 stitches is for a man's size.

Knitting worsted yarn similar to TLC or Super Saver
Size 7 needles
4sts = 1 inch

Lady’s size (Men’s in parenthesis)

Cast on 80 (90) sts
K2, p2 for 6 (7) inches
Work decreases: Row 1: * k8, k2 tog*
Row 2: and all alt rows, Purl
Row 3: *k7, k2 tog*
Row 5: *k6, k2 tog*
Row 7: *k5, k2 tog*
Row 9: *k4, k2 tog*
Row 11: *k3, k2 tog*
Row 13: *k2, k2 tog*
Row 15: *k1, k2 tog*
Row 17: k 2 tog all around
Leaving a long tail, cut yarn and thread through the rem sts. Sew tog.

Cute hat and the pattern looks easy enough that even I could do it (maybe). I haven't heard of spinoc but it sounds like a great organization.
