This brim up, textured hat lets the soft, luxurious yarn really shine. Although I worked it in a semi-solid, you could work this in a speckled or handpainted colorway as well.

The textured pattern reminds me of small rocks and pebbles transitioning to sand on the beach.

The hat is worked in the round from the bottom up. Work an optional tubular cast on, directions included, or your preferred stretchy cast on.
