so my pal's bro owns a water polo company...thing...stuff... i don't really know.  he owns a business that has something to do with water polo.  anyhoo, my pal asked me to make a hat for his bro that looks like a water polo cap, but you know, knit.  i have a pattern i think i can modify well enough but i'm having trouble figuring out how i'm gonna make the ear thingys (sorry, i know nothing about water polo, let alone the technical terms for the uniforms, but i do like watching cute boys play  Wink )   they kinda stick out a little, i think i can get away with making them solid, without the holes, as it seems the holes are different on each style.  anyone got any ideas?  i'd love to just be able to crochet in the round but for some reason i can't.  i've tried a million times to and it just never works for me.  any help would be great, as this is supposed to be an x-mas gift (yeah, thanks for letting me know so close to x-mas pal, oh and thanks for telling everyone i'm taking commissions without asking me, jerk.  my list is now soooo long. ok rant over.  good thing i'm celebrating the holidays with my family in january!)

You will probably find something helpful at knittingpatterncentral.

There's a vintage women's hat of a similar shape (like 1940's or so, maybe aviator
or pilot or something...can't remember)

P.S. Girls play water polo, too. Smiley Water polo boys are weird.  I remember two of them wandered around on deck in girls' swimsuits that were owned by our school for rentals.

add ear muffs to that, maybe with contrast colour dots for "holes"
