This is hands down the best men's hat pattern out there. It's easy, free, and uses a single skein of yarn. I've made four out of Noro Silk Garden and see the recipients wearing them all over town. Just finished one in Cascade's Eco Duo and it's delicious.
Chunky hat with a folded brim for extra warmth. In Berroco Blackstone Tweed - subtle flecks of tweed and a soft angora bloom makes for a perfect cozy winter hat.
