i am always terribly worried about one of my guy friends because he keeps his hair closely-cut to his head (he's african-american and hates when his hair grows out and gets "nappy"), but he never wears a hat.  with the way the weather's been this winter,  and him with no hat to catch that 90% of body heat escaping from the top of his head, i decided to make him a hat for christmas, just for my own peace of mind, if not to keep his head warm.

i reccommend a soft, somehwat bulky yarn (i used bernat's denim yarn, it's soft and slightly stretchy too) and medium sized needles (i think i used size 8, maybe).  i only used one skein and it turned out plenty big.

here is a link to the pattern i used: http://www.groovy-mom.com/crafty/patterns/chunkyribbedhat.shtml.  

it knit up really quickly and turned out nicely too.  if it's too long, it can always be folded up at the brim too for a roll effect.

this is a good boyfriend/husband/brother/dad hat or for little kids, and it's easy enough for someone still working on their knitting skills (like me) who wants to move beyond scarves.

i'm just glad his dumb ass has a hat now...

LOL!  We knitters can be so bossy sometimes :)

That's a really good-looking hat!  Classy.
