Good Simple Crochet Hat Patterns that Start at the top?

So I got this teal alpaca wool hat a few years ago and it's too floppy and big on me so I don't wear it. I've been considering taking it apart and crocheting up a replacement hat to the size of my current favorite hat that is starting to look shoddy. I'm mostly nervous that I'll run out of yarn, I know to use a larger hook so the yarn will go farther and it will end up smaller overall too which should help -- and it's not like I'm using it anyway as it is -- I figure worst case I could turn it into a hat for one of the kids.

Also do you know a free simple crochet hat pattern that starts at the top and works down. I think that would be better than the alternative, even using the foundationless stitch. Also any idea what the stitch would be called or the best way to attach a second layer (the orange layer)? I haven't tried crocheting a hat since I first learned, trying to make baby hats before my first was born, none of them were usable (all bottom up with chain stitch and no model to try them on).

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hat-set-alicia Are you on raverly? If not it is free to sign up. Then just search for top down hats. I found tons of them. Not sure what you would consider easy though.

yeah i went and started poking around... there are SO many patterns there it's hard to know if they are really good or not , I choose one, I have enough "tester" yarn I figured I'd do a few rows and see.

thanks!

That looks like a nice simple pattern. Should work up quick.
