He brought his hat into work and asked if I could knit one similar to it. Here's a picture:

Have you ever seen a hat constructed like this, knitted circularly, a snug-fitting, helmet-style? A friend gave me a pattern that she found that was very similar (thanks!), but was knitted flat and seamed up the back. I really want to work in the round. I'm not concerned about the stitch that's used, although learning what it is would be a bonus. I can always decide on a nice textured pattern later. It's the construction that I'm striving for now.
I've already chosen the yarn: Plymouth Yarns Baby Alpaca "Ampato", an aran/heavy-worsted weight, very nice and soft-to-the-touch yarn in a charcoal/gray tweed color (#500), about 4 stitches = 1 inch on size 8 needles.

So....do you know of a pattern, or can you make a suggestion on how to make a hat like this?
