Melanie Falick's "Meathead" hat pattern is available as a free download throughout the next week (?) here http://www.melaniefalickbooks.com/april-2008-meathead-hat-from/2008/4/9/meathead-hat-from-knitalong.html if anyone is interested. After that, it will only be available through her new book.
It's a really adorable hat with an unfortunate name. Here is the Ravelry link to see some images of what people are doing with the pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/meathead-hat
