This squishy hat is named for one of my favorite places, Buncombe County, NC. Situated in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the county boasts a unique blend of mountain views, quaint towns, and outdoor activities. Buncombe’s laid back, slouchy style is perfect for a day of shopping and brunching, a weekend hike, or a night spent savoring local brews. Whatever your scene, Buncombe makes a cozy and stylish companion.

The stitch pattern mimics brioche, but does not actually use the brioche stitch!
