I'm the madmonkeyknitter from www.madmonkeyknits.com and I design knitting patterns. This is my Baby Silk Peak Slouch Hat knitting pattern. I chose Debbie Bliss Pure Silk which makes this peak slouch light and silky to wear. It can also be made in any dk yarn of your choice. Its worked flat on 4 mm needles and knitted entirely in one piece. There is no stiffener needed for the peak so there are no laundry problems.
