First designed for Quarry as part of our Ganseys collection, this unisex cap pattern now includes directions for knitting at a finer gauge to make the most of Arbor’s lush palette and crisp definition. Rope cables and delicate seeded tree forms sprout from a brim of half-twisted rib, which can be worked to shorter or longer lengths to achieve your desired fit.
