Here is a little album of the Amy Singer KnitWit pattern Churro. I've made at least one for every family member...several friends...and just recently modified it for an infant. The most recent ones for the family I've lined with polarfleece to 1) provide an extra layer of warmth-especially on windy days and 2) decrease itch potential. Using a 1/4 yard (actually less) of the polar fleece, I just cut a circle a little larger than the top of the hat, then a folded piece that follows the length and ear flap of the part from crown to brim. Sew this around the circle, then handstitch the lining into the brim/edging of the knitted hat. Anyway...these are quite popular in my neighborhood and I'll be making at least 2 more for holiday gifts for DH's best guyfriend and his sound technician.
