ok, so I've done a little research since I posted, and I'm basically looking for a pattern for a rasta hat or a rasta tam. I found a crochet pattern
(sorry, I don't know how to do those cool links)
But I'd rather not crochet. Thats why I knit! So I don't have to (well, rarely) crochet! If anyone can give me some hints on converting the pattern, that might help too!
