Here it is:

How would I go about doing that? I can't zoom in, but it doesn't look like fair isle, because the grey stitches seem to stick out more than the blue ones, if you see what I mean.

What about making it like the mason-dixon wash cloth, but reversing the k & p and playing with it a bit to make is more like an oval (maybe transitioning the corners by p 3 instead of the 1 st)?

Alternatively, but harder, there's a 2-layer hat concept in Lace Style called the peek-a-boo cloche (ravelry link--need to be signed in to view), where you start at the top of one side, then transition to the other side and just before you bind off the hat, you flip the inside into the outside.  The gray could be done with many yo's and then p1, k1 into them to create large holes like lace.  Or you might try the method in the swiss cheese scarf.

To me, it looks like mosiac knitting. Here is a link to an example from Knitty:http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/FEATslipstitch.html. I've never done it, but it doesn't look too bad.

Ooh, I didn't think of mosaic knitting! I've wanted to try that anyway, so maybe I'll do that. The ball-band dishcloth is a good idea too.
The lace cloche, while it's pretty different from the original idea, is calling to me now. It's so pretty!

I found the stitch pattern for the colour bands in a book I have.

Multiples of 8 + 2 (1 edge stitch on each side.)
Rows 1 (Right side), 2, 9, 10, 17, 18 [colour A]: Knit all stitches.
Rows 3, 5, 7 [colour B]: knit 1, *knit 3, slip 2 purlwise (With yarn at back), knit 3*, repeat from * to * until 1 stitch left, knit 1.
Rows 4, 6, 8 [colour B]: knit 1, *purl 3, slip 2 purlwise (with yarn in front), purl 3*, repeat from * to * until 1 stitch left, knit 1.
Rows 11, 13, 15 [colour B]: knit 1, *slip 1 purlwise (yarn at back), knit 6, slip 1 purlwise (yarn at back)*, repeat from * to * until 1 stitch left, knit 1.
Rows 12, 14, 16 [colour B]: knit 1, *slip 1 purlwise (yarn in front), purl 6, slip 1 purlwise (yarn in front)*, repeat from * to * until 1 stitch left, knit 1.

Repeat rows 3 to 18 inclusive.

The knit stitch at the start and end of each row won't be needed when you do it in the round.

That beanie is gorgeous, I wanna make one too.

If anyone makes this, I would love to see it.  Would you let us know if it works out?

If you google Newfoundland Mittens you should be able to get the pattern for the "honeycomb" part of the hat. I know that someone had it posted on their blog, but I can't seem to locate it right now.
