Lion Brand says, “This casual cap is great for guys and gals. Other colorways include Olive/Mustard, Olive/Pea Green, Pea Green/Olive, and Beige/Taupe. ”

Would love to make this again in a larger size (such as 66 sc). The pattern has some clever elements, such as the vertical striping and its shaping.
