If this looks a lot like Sissy's hat, you are right! I used the same yarns...however, made the hat a little more like Bro's with a basket weave stitch in the middle...post stitches. I had to vary it slightly from the pattern given in the book in that they turned at the end, and I wanted to go round and round. This relief stitch has turned out to be a great one for caps as it has the give and take of knitting. Love it!
