From Coney Island to Dumbo, and from Bushwick to Cobble Hill, Brooklyn is a vibrant borough brimming with things to do. It offers a rich arts scene, world class restaurants to suit every budget, elegant brownstones, sprawling parks, and stunning river views. Brooklyn is a borough of diverse neighborhoods with something for everyone. This hat is named for the river that runs under the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, which carries hundreds of thousands of people, in cars, on bikes, or on foot, back and forth between Brooklyn and Manhattan each day.

This playful stranded colorwork hat is a tribute to Brooklyn. Make it a slouch or a beanie, use bright contrasting colors or more muted sophisticated shades, add a pompom, tassel, or go without. This is a hat you can make to match your style.
