the harbour hat
A STUDY IN DECADENCE
The classic lines of simple ribbing. Modern, oversized proportions. Heavenly natural yarns. The Harbour Hat is a study in decadence from cast-on to bind-off. Roll up the brim once for a cozy, slouchy fit. Or roll it up twice for a closer, snugglier winter hat experience. This quick and versatile hat is a delight to knit, to wear, and to give—if you can bear to part with it!
