Hey, Everybody!

I have a friend whom I'm going to teach to knit in a few weeks.  She wants to learn because she's allergic to acrylic and most warm wintery stuff is made out of it, so she either has to go specialty mail-order or homemade.

We were planning on doing hats. I know how to knit on dpns and I can teach her the basic stitches on my regular needles first, but I'm looking for a hat pattern that is fairly simple so that I can teach it.

It'll be my first hat, and I have never done colorwork.  Does anyone have a user-friendly first-time hat pattern?

That's the same reason I started knitting. haha.
I'm allergic to acrylic. It's horrible. Cheesy
So I have a bumload of cotton everywhere.

The first hat I knit was this one, http://kittyville.com/knit/adult_devil_hat.html, minus the horns.
I found it very easy to knit. It was actually the first pattern I followed and everything.

Hopefully that will help you. Smiley

I would've made her one myself, but she wants something like wool I think, and it irritates my skin (could I knit with latex gloves on? Who knows?).

How did you do it without the horns though?

Just omit the instructions for the horns. They're added later on, not knit into the pattern.
