I am one of the knitters who asked for the pattern.
I have just started knitting a hat using this pattern:
that was mentioned in the other thread. The only problem with this one is that it uses sock yarn. I have modified it to use bulky yarn (Lion Jiffy) by casting on 128 sts on size 8 needles. When I get to the decrease part of the hat, I will use the chart (in the pattern above) starting with row 9. i.e. I will have 32 sts in each of four sections. This pattern uses a 2x2 rib. I would post a picture now, but there is nothing really to show -- 4 inches of 2x2 ribbing!
