This is a warm and classic winter hat that works well for both men and women. The alternating ribs and small cables give the fabric an elastic quality, enabling the hat to fit a range of head sizes, and the long ribbed hem allows for a fold-up brim to keep the ears warm. The Peruvian wool I used to make this hat comes in a wide range of beautiful colors, so it’s easy to find something to suit any wearer’s taste.
