Thank you Kirsa. I found a similar pattern and created the hat, which I posted about on my blog: http://insprink.blogspot.com/2011/02/glee-inspired-quinn-fabray-crochet-hat.html
but it still doesn't have the ribbing effect and small nubbin at the top that I'm looking for. I even searched on Etsy and I found one paid pattern, but it still wasn't quit what I am looking for. I think I gathered enough tutorials that I'm going to do my best to mix and match. We will see how that goes
Thanks again for your time. I really appreciate it.
