Chamberlain is a slouchy hat with a textured brim. This simple hat features optional tubular cast on, a slim 2x2 ribbing which flows organically into the honeycomb-like embossed pattern of the brim. The stitch pattern of the brim is very easy to work and it creates a beautiful, thick and warm fabric. The body of the hat is worked in simple stockinette stitch.
