Ribbed Hat - knit in Greenland

This holiday season, I took on a bunch of projects (more than I would normally think was sane) and was able to complete most of them.  This hat was was for a neighbor and I was more than happy to knit with Greenland again.  Greenland  is an ideal yarn to knit for a guy - it is durable yet soft - plus it is easy care - just throw it in the washer and dryer.
While knitting this, I realized this stitch would also make a lovely cowl, so I am sure that will be on the needles at some point in the near future.
