Hipster Hat - by Tin Can Knits

Vancouver is full of hipsters in skinny jeans with artfully
dishevelled hair, oversized glasses, fashionably ill-fitting
coats and mismatched prints. The hipster is clearly too cool for school, and they come by this nonchalant but epic style naturally, right? WRONG.

They work at it EVERY DAY. It is NOT EASY. This hat is the perfect knit for your favourite hipster: classic but a tiny bit edgy and inside-out looking, to maintain that ‘I don’t give a damn’ ethos. Hipster can be knit in aran or DK weight yarn in sizes from proto-hipster baby to ‘I wish I was still a hipster’ grown-up.*
