I used http://ohmystars.net/craft/knitting/pfihat.html as a patttern with some slight preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'modifications....but') I basically just taught myself "stranded" knitting/fair isle knitting. I'm making one for my girlfriend, but in different colors and with earflaps.

Awesome hat!  I love the inspiration I get from this site. 
On an entirely unrelated topic:  I love the Blackadder quote.  One of my favourite shows Smiley

Cute!  I tried going to the site, but it is temporarily suspended. Sad
