Yeah, I'm experimenting on a hat now doing k1 sl 1 then a round of knits and alternate the 2 rounds instead of ribbing. It looks pretty good until you stretch it, then it it doesn't look like ribbing anymore.
It was hard enough to find a man where the feeling is mutual, so I plan on sticking with this one for a while. :D I'll do ribbing on a hat edge, just not so much for the whole hat.
