Still Life With Hat on Bus

I saw this woman get on the bus and she was wearing the coolest knitted hat:

That was the best shot I could get without looking like a creepy stalker. I hate my stupid camera, blurry blurry and it totally ruins my psycho paparazzi shots of hats and moving cars and so on. This is the best I could get in closeup:

Looks like a self-striping yarn knitted in maybe a knit-3-purl-1 ribbed pattern? The ribbed pattern was continued all the way through the decreases. And it wasn't a form-fitting hat, more like a beret. I think I could find a way to change up the chunky beret pattern, except it wouldn't be chunky, and it would be ribbed.

I smell a project coming on.... although why anyone is wearing a knitted hat in Los Angeles in July is a mystery unto itself.
