Lugano is a classic cabled hat featuring a ribbed brim and alternating “peek-a-boo” style cables that come together on the top of the hat. The hat comes in two sizes: a size small to fit a woman’s head of between 20-24 inches and a size large to fit a man’s head of between 22-26 inches. Knit in a DK-weight wool or wool-blend tweed yarn, Lugano is functional as well as fashionable and is sure to keep one’s head warm all through the Fall and Winter. The hat was designed for the distinct look of a tweed yarn but would look great in a solid or heathered color yarn as well.
