Does anyone have this pattern or know where to find it other than that website.  I'm at work and the site is being blocked because it's a forum...  Sad  I can get it when I get home, but I was hoping to start during my lunch...

Might be too late, but here you go!
Knit in the round on size 8 16-inch circular needles and DPNs for decreasing.

SKPO=slip, knit, pass slipped stitch over

Cast on a multiple of 11 stitches which is also an even number. (i believe the hat shown used 110, but beware that I knit *very* tightly. Normal knitters could easily get away with 88 stitches cast on. )

Work the band in 2x2 rib knit for about 1 inch. (You'll notice my rib knit is 3x3. This was a mistake. Don't do that. This hat also has a row of purled stitches. You can either do that or not. )

1st row: *P1,K9, P1, repeat from * to end
2nd row: same as for 1
3rd row: *P1, hold three stitches forward, K3, knit 3 from cable, K3, P1, repeat from, * to end
4th 5th 6th: same as row 1
7th row: *P1, K3, hold 3 stitches to back, K3, k3 from cable, P1, repeat from, * to end
8th row: same as row 1
Rows 1-8 form pattern. Repeat for desired length. (until hat covers ears and reaches the crown of your head.)

Decrease rows:
Work two rounds of: (p1,k9, p1) around.
Next round, decrease within each cable: P1, hold three stitches forward, K1 k2tog, from held stitches k1 k2tog, K1 skpo, P1, repeat from, *
Knit 2 rnds of: (p1, k6, p1) around.
Decrease round: (p1, k2tog, hold 2 stitches to back, k2tog, on held stitches, skpo, p1) around
Work one round of (p1, skpo, k1, p1)
Work one rnd: (p1, k2, p1) around.
Decrease rnd: (skpo, p2tog) around.
Last rnd: (k1, p1) around, cut yarn and pull through the remaining stitches
Sew a pompom on the top.
