This is a simple 2x2 ribbed hat, knit in the round.  I fail completely at judging how much...or how little ribbing will stretch.  This, combined with my impatience for figuring out gauge, makes a lot of my hats gravitate toward that hazy area of "are you headware or a carrying apparatus?  My method is to hold it against the side of my head, or try to put it on while on the needles, until I think it's long enough. Then, I knit a few more rounds because I get nervous and second guess myself.

Action shot!

Not so much action shot

The yarn is lion brand wool-ease on size 8 needles.  The stitches are a bit stretched near the top because I was too lazy to find the dpns for the end and the cable on my circulars was a bit too long at that point.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
