For casual weekend errands, throw on this organically cabled hat that recalls patches of sky glimpsed from the forest floor. Sturdy cabled trunks interspersed among the ribs of the brim branch into more delicate interlacing motifs on a ground of reverse stockinette. The ribbed crown finishes with a jaunty pompom, if you so desire. Try it in your favorite bright accent color from the Shelter palette or choose a wear-with-everything neutral like Fossil or Snowbound.
