Fish Moderne Hat
Warm and cozy for winter, the Fish Moderne Hat is knit in heavily textured Mistake Rib with a Twisted Rib brim. I wanted a classic wool ribbed hat that would have an updated look and be interesting to knit; this hat is for the modern fisherman or woman, whether they are out in the wilderness or at the urban coffee bar.
