Do you often get disappointed when you ask a guy in your life what hat you should knit him? You hope for an interesting and inspiring knit. He answers something like: “Just a simple rib hat please, nothing fancy.”
If that’s the case, Bricolage may be the hat that makes you both happy. It’s a sort of rib hat (his wish) but not just a simple one (your wish). The stitch pattern is interesting but not very difficult. What keeps you going is how the stitch pattern changes every 8 rounds. In fact, knitting this hat is a bit like building bricks.

Pattern has been test knitted.
Pattern stitch is both written and charted.
Instructions for alternative crown are given.
Contains links to tutorials for two color braided cast on.
