My boyfriend BEGGED me for a hat like Bill Murray's and Owen Wilson... in Wes Anderson's "The Life Aquatic" so I came up with this look a like and it seems to be a pretty popular hat pattern on here. So I'll submit my version too. Here is the link:

Steve Zissou hat by a l e x a n d r a. k, on Flickr

6.5 mm circular needles (mine is 16 in. from tip to tip) and dpns. for the end (same size)
Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in RED (I found this at Wal-Vegas)
yarn needle

CO 85 sts. --this pattern is specifically for this yarn! it is very stretchy and my boyfriend has a large melon
place marker at 1st st.

Knit 4, Purl 1 for ribbing for 7 1/2 inches or so --whatever looks right to you, you should make it long so that you have a flip up brim

after 7 1/2 in. k5, k2 tog, all the way around (stop ribbing after you get to 7 1/2 in. I swear that it will look fine)
k all
k4, k2tog, around
k all
k3 k2tog, around
k all
k2, k2tog, around
k all
k1, k2tog, around , k all, repeat until you have 6 sts. or so and change to dpns. when you need to. Cut yarn, leave a tail for pulling through stitches, and through the center, knot really good a couple of times and you've got your Team Zissou hat!!

I've always loved that hat and your version looks great.
Are you going to add the stoplight colored buttons along the band? I've seen those buttons on a couple of versions of that hat.
