If you’re looking for a hat that takes you in an entirely new direction, off the expected construction trail, you are going to love the way Heritage Trail is knit. This unique pattern starts by working textured stitches and simple cables that are shaped to give an easy slouch that naturally falls toward the back of your head. To finish, the crown is simply gathered and cinched, giving you a jaunty top knot to let the world know that you don’t always follow the rules!
