I made this one yesterday. It's my version of the famous (Swedish?) hat floating around the web.
It's mixed yearns I had stuffed away. The brown is wool, the rest I have no idea what it is.

I just made it up as I went along, if there's someone who'd like some kind of pattern I'm sure I can come up with something. Just remember it was made to fit my huge head. Cheesy

That's so cute!  Did you use a pattern or just make it up as you went?  Anyhow, I love it!

yeah - pattern would be awesome..... even some general direction.  This is cool, and i love the colours... reminds me of that weird Pana .... something or other head scarf thing on here a while back.  I'm going to see if i can track it down.

Direction... or rather... read this and then swing it to fit your own head. Cheesy

So, I used yarn sts 20-22 and needles 4.

Since my head is pretty huge, I started with 95 sts on circular needles.

Knit around with black and purl the next 4 with same yarn.
Switch yarn, knit 6 rounds with light/brown yarn.
Knit around with black and purl the next 4 with same yarn.
Switch yarn, knit 6 rounds with light/brown yarn.

Knit this way until 6th black stripe.

Decrease on every 7th stitch on first and last round on next light stripe.
Knit next black stripe.
Decrease on every 5th stitch on first and last round on next light stripe.
Knit next black stripe
Decrease on every 3th stitch on first and last round on next light stripe.
Decrease on every 2nd stitch with black yarn until end.
