The wilderness of British Columbia features a myriad of towering peaks and rugged terrain. ASCENT features textured panels that were inspired by alpine rock fields, complemented by ascending panels of slipped stitches. This pattern was inspired by exploring the backcountry, getting lost in the landscape, and the journey of the climb.

This pattern has been tech edited by Heather Ross (@redpencilconfidential), and both sizes thoroughly tested.

This hat is designed to match the DESCENT cowl. Both can be purchased as a package for $6.00 - no code necessary. Discount is also applied if you purchased either pattern previously.
