From pattern: The Beaufort wind scale allows sailors to estimate wind
speed; at 19 - 24 mph (a “fresh breeze”), waves are topped
with whitecaps, and foam begins to spray from their peaks.
(For those landlocked, small trees sway!) The color and
pattern of th is hat remind me of billowing whitecaps, and
the yarn — a cotton - microfiber blend — is suitable for a chilly
afternoon on the water, even in mid - summer.

Possible yarn substitutes: Jo Sharp Silk Road Aran, Lamb’s Pride
Worsted, Blue Sky Cotton, Classic Elite Four Seasons Cotton or Bazic
