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.

Regular Guy Beanie Knitter says - best men's hat pattern, easy, uses single skein, made 4 in Noro Silk Garden & 1 in Cascade Eco Duo.
