May I recommend the DELMONT Cap?
The Delmont Cap is a little twist on the traditional beanie with a button accent. Your choice of yarn and button can take it from classic to military to cute. It is unisex, easy knitting and sized for the whole family!
The brim/body of the hat is worked back and forth on a circular or straight needle, then the crown is worked in the round using your favorite method (Magic Loop, 2 circulars, or dpns). The hat begins with a center back cast-on and is work side-to-side in garter stitch. Increases and decreases along one edge create the gently curved fold up brim. Stitches are then picked up along the straight edge and piece is joined to work crown in the round. Purl decreases are used to add a little texture to the spiral crown shaping and make it easy to see where decreases occur without using stitch markers. Feel free to substitute K2tog decreases if you prefer and then there’s no purling involved at all!
