“The Captain’s Return Hat is a men’s beanie worked in the round with an allover cable pattern. The hat was inspired by my brother,” the designer notes, “a captain in the Canadian military. He spent the summer of 2013 under the scorching Afghanistan sun, and returned home in the late fall just in time for the beginning of the hard Northern Alberta winter.”
