I made these for my boys (not using a pattern) and they were very happy.

Using up almost 1 skein of Scheepjes Colour Crafter in the Red & in the Green.
Also using one skein Scheepjes Panda for the brim and pom poms, using approximately 90-100 meters of the white Scheepjes Colour Crafter along with the Scheepjes Panda.

This is how I made the hats:
Using 5,5 mm hook and Scheepjes Colour Crafter using the Half Double Crochet in the 3rd loop, stitch.

12 hdc in third loop, inc rep rnd (56)
crochet 3 rows hdc in third loop (56)
13 hdc in third loop, inc rep rnd (60)
crochet 3 rows hdc in third loop (60)
14 hdc in third loop, inc rep rnd (64)
crochet 3 rows hdc in third loop (64)
15 hdc in third loop, inc rep rnd (68)
crochet 8 rows hdc in third loop (68)
16 hdc in third loop, inc rep rnd (72)
crochet 8 rows hdc in third loop (72)
17 hdc in third loop, inc rep rnd (76)
crochet 10 rows hdc in third loop (76) <- size for my 14 year old and my (big headed) 9 year old.

Try the hat on as you crochet and just keep adding stitches to find the size needed.
Depending on the size, the 8 rows and 10 rows are part of the last parts of the hat.

Brim:

Using 5,5 mm hook and 2 threads, white color, Scheepjes Panda & Scheepjes Colour Crafter.

Join the yarn around the back post of a stitch and chain 8.
Work the brim in the opposite direction from previous work.
Sc in the 2nd ch from the hook and sc in the next 6. (7)

  2. Sc in the BLO, across (7). Ch 1 and turn. 
  3. Sc back down (7). 

Repeat from 1-3 until the brim is complete, turn the hat inside out and slip stitch through both sts to close the gap.
