Sunday morning-- a good time for knitting! almost September-- a good time for starting hats!

my boyfriend wants this: http://www.oipolloi.com/store/OurLegacy-FishermanHatRed-3562.html#

I know how I would do the bottom part, but can anyone help me with the top? it looks like moss stitch/seed stitch, but is there something else going on?

also, one of the views shows the back of the hat, which has a big ol' seam. i'm not so keen on knitting a hat flat, but should i do it anyway? if so, any advice on shaping the crown is welcome.

thanks a million!!!

You can knit it all in the round.  Some patterns start flat & then join to make it easier to avoid twisted stitches.

The top is a moss stitch.
