This textured hat starts at the brim with garter stitch and short row shaping, creating subtle earflaps. Twisted stitches, cables, and knit/purl stitches fill the body of the hat with loads of texture to showcase yarns with crisp stitch definition. Choose a pop of color or a more rustic natural shade and go to town with this adventurous design!
