Dave Chappelle is wearing this nifty hat on the front of this month's issue of Blender and I was wondering if anyone knew the stitch pattern that is being used. It's some sort of ribbing, but I am not quite sure how it's done.

Thanks. Smiley

Hmm, there's something called 'corrugated ribbing' where you do the k's and p's in two different colors, but I've never seen it done, so Idon't know if that's how it would look (maybe, a k1p1 corrugated rib (carrying yarn in back) with a pretty hefty yarn on smaller than recommended needles?)

This technique is explained in the Weekend Knits book.  I made a hat out of it, but my guage was really tight, so it was very tough to work on, and very confusing.  Basically you cast on with 2 colors and do a 1x1 rib, purling in one color and knitting on the other.

Ironically enough, I found that book today while looking for a project to knit. It's called brioche (incase anyone cares), do you have any suggestions for that pattern? I was going to do the hat and probably the scarf as well.
