Here it is. I created this quick and simple hat pattern for my dear friend about a year ago and I have recently written it down and remade it. The Natalie Toque is a simple ribbed toque that is modern, simple and, best of all, unisex. I have written simple instructions here for you to enjoy and you can download the PDF through ravelry here.
