Looking for a hat that…

a) will really and truly keep your ears
warm, and

b) is vaguely named after your favorite
walrusy diabeetus spokesperson, for no reason other than the “brim” in his name?

You’ve come to the right place. This hat features an oversized double-brim to really keep the wind out, complete with seamless hem and cheeky contrast picots. (For a more unisex look, work a purl round in place of the eyelet/picot round.) Also features an unusual decrease scheme and “Looks great with thick glasses” capabilities (just ask all my testers, who apparently also wear thick glasses! Haha.)
