hat for hubby
I want to knit a hat for my hubby. He isn't a 'homemade hat' kind of fella... so I want it to be perfect. I measured his bean and it is about 22 inches.

I got a gorgeous yarn.. Paton SWS in Natural Navy

http://www.patonsyarns.com/product.php?LGC=sws&SPP=999

really soft and nice 'manly' colors.

Any suggestions on a fairly straight forward pattern? I've been just casting on in the round, K1/P1 for about an inch and then K for about5 inches and then decrease K8 K2tog, etc, K a row, K7 K2tog etc etc etc until I have between 10 and 20 stiches and then I finish the hat.


Are there other patterns that fit better or that look better than that?

I want to make my fussy man a happy one!

Thanks!
