Hats for men?
I want to knit 2 different hats. One for my husband which I want to be like a normal winter hat - is it called a stocking hat??? - the kind that comes down to cover the ears and has the cuff and all that. I don't really want to do fair isle, but variagated (sp) yarn would be cool.

The other one has me a bit stumped... We have a friend who keeps his head bald & I want to make him one of those snug fitting hats that comes above the ears - that's what he wears - but I don't know what it's called.

Any suggestions for patterns for either of these would be appreciated! TIA

I think most any pattern would work fine for a man other than frilly or obviously feminine hats. To make a fold up brim you just make the ribbing longer. The other hat might be called a beanie? I don't know, but again I think any pattern just made shorter would work.

"Originally a male-only occupation, the first knitting trade guild was started in Paris in 1527. Knitting became a household occupation with the growing popularity of knitted stockings and by the end of the 1600s, one to two million pairs of stockings were exported from Britain to other parts of Europe."
