I just received 3 skeins of Knit Picks Elegance (yummy) in the mail in Coal and I want to make something for my boyfriend. I've made him scarves and fingerless mitts (for taking photos outside in the snow) and was thinking maybe a hat. I wonder if anyone has a suggestion for a fairly easy "manly" hat pattern? I've looked around and there are so many, I can't decide so I'm hoping for some suggestions. (OK. I just really want to begin working with this wonderful yarn)
Thanks!

So what hat did you decide on? I agree, there are so many free patterns available sometimes the pattern-picking is the hardest part!

I didn't, I'm still looking... I think I'm being to picky...

Too many patterns to choose from. I have that trouble too.
Maybe one of these? All are suitable for man and for yarn weight you have.
