Fables is without a doubt my favourite hat of the year. It has a brim that can button up or down and some darling cables that can be embroidered or left plain. The extra bulk over your ears is guaranteed to keep you warm. This whimsical cap also makes a special gift.

This hat is knit from the bottom to the crown with the brim added afterwards in garter stitch. The brim is folded up on either side. It can be tacked in place with buttons or buttonholes can be made so you have the option to fold it down. This hat has one size.*
