HERe's a link to Martha's pattern--it was the first hat I made, and I was satisfied with it. It knits up quickly if you use Jiffy Thick n Quick.http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.3a0656639de62ad593598e10d373a0a0/?vgnextoid=ab29d0f19132f010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&autonomy_kw=knit&rsc=ns2006_m2
This pattern is supposedly similar to the legendary "one hour hat," that I've never seen. There used to be a thread about that one Completed Projects. Lots of FO pics .
