“When I was swatching designs for this fall’s collection, I found myself again and again drawn to lace and cable combinations. After designing the Bray pullover I was still wanting to explore ideas with the same stitch motifs and felt that a matching cap would be fitting. The relief-like horseshoe cables contrast with the graphic eyelet columns and smaller cables to create a fabric that has textural appeal but remains light and open. The fabric has good elasticity and fits a range of adult head sizes comfortably.” –Jared Flood

Hat is worked circularly from the bottom up.
