“Howzat!” In Cricket, this term (derived from “How’s that?”) is an appeal made by the fielding team which asks the Umpire for a decision as to whether or not a batsman is out. Following the cricket theme, this hat is made from the bottom up using a circular needle and features nifty cable rib patterning and funky stripes!
