Vancouver is full of hipsters; you know, tall guys in skinny
jeans who have no bums, and ladies in with carefully
mussed up hair, oversized glasses, and curious ill-fitting
wool jackets that look like they’re from Salvation Army
but are really from Banana Republic. And don’t overlook
the odd mash-up of different prints, and carefully the
coordinated yet clashing colours.
This funky toque is a new pattern, coming soon as part of our upcoming collection Pacific Knits.
