jberry, I have naturally curly hair, and I made myself three of the SnB "Newsboy Caps" (from SnB "Nation"). You can adjust the pattern to be bigger to accomodate more hair or smaller to accomodate less thicker hair. For myself, I made the largest of the sizes, and I pile my hair into it, and I don't have a problem with it frizzing up my hair or anything, or giving me "hat hair". I really love the hat--it's very comfortable, not too tight or too loose, and it's been a real lifesaver on "bad hair days". It was easy to knit, too. Just a suggestion.
