pattern for a "manly" hat?
Wishing you well, everybody. Does anyone know or can direct me to a hat pattern for a guy? I'd like to knit one for my brother, who wears a few hats. Seems like there's alot of patterns for us girls and I'm having some trouble finding a manly one. I've found ones for berets but those are a no-go. Thank you!

There are pages of patterns on Ravelry (free to join). Did you have something in particular in mind (a beanie or something more tailored, maybe a newsboy's cap)?

Salmonmac, you hit the nail on the head with the newsboy's cap, that's what I was seeing in my head. I do belong to Ravelry and I'll check it out. They do have fantastic patterns there, don't they? I'm so glad you mentioned the newsboy's cap since that would be right up my brother's alley. Thank you lots!

I found one yesterday that looks good, has a few intertwined cables but is basically a ribbed hat. It's free on Knitty too - Knotty but Nice.

This is more of an English driving cap but some people have done it here at KH. A fisherman's cap is in the same spirit, too.

There's a new man in my life who could use a hat when it's cold out. He has some, but I was thinking about making him another. So this one struck me as suitable for him, the only problem is I don't like ribbing!!! We'll see if I like him more than I dislike ribbing and cables.... Or I'll find another - I like the one salmonmac linked too.

Wait! Are you saying you'll find another man rather than do ribbing and cables? Wow! That's a bit strong, Sue!
