A great Mens knit hat. The Parthenon, is a good-looking manly hat. Currently a Free loom knitting pattern on this site. It proves that classic and sporty can be worn at the same time on the same head. Only stitch skill needed is Knit and Purl.
I love ancient Greek architectureespecially the ones that include the Doric columns. Round top over strong straight columns. Simple but powerful looking, like the man you have in mind for this hat.
Try this one out, then come back with your comments and any questions. All are greatly appreciated.

A Trick I Used
It’s difficult for me to stay on track. I have mild ADD. Anything that pops into my head takes precedence over what ever I’m doing or suppose to be doing. I have to use tools that let me know where I left off.
I used these white replacement pegs to keep up with my pattern. I knitted on green and purled on white. Reversed when necessary.

Yarn: I Used Red Heart Super Saver – Worsted Weight in Hunter Green
Stitches: Knit and Purl
Cast-On: Use two strands of yarn as one. Wrap all pegs tightly – Row 1 is part of the cast-on.
Note: Use the Flat Knit e-Wrap on Row 1. You can use any e-Wrap knit stitch after that.
