The bramble stitch pattern gives this hat a wonderful texture - in dark purple it looks like a ripe blackberry. Choose between a basic beanie or stylish slouch. The hat is knit inside out, and you may even decide to wear it that way on some days – the reverse side is an interesting lacey trellis pattern.
