Maria Hat from Hats On Head.
Maria is a colorful person, both inside and out. She is probably the dandiest hairdresser in southern Norway. Together with a friend, she runs a salon that feels more suited to London or New York than the little town of Sandnes where she lives.

Maris has strong opinions, as well as a sharp, quick tongue; having discussions with her can be lots of fun because you have to keep on your toes. Maria loves to dress in bright colors, so for her hat, I used red for her passionate nature, and pink for her dandiness.

<b>Gauge</b>
24 stitches = 4 inches (10cm)

I think the smaller needles is for make the beginning of the hat, mayber only the first row. Then you can use the bigger needles.
I've already seen that on some hat pattern, it's for having a well tight edge.
