The mountains have always been a space for me to relax, refresh and reenergize. This hat is a tribute to the endless hours of play and meditation that can happen in the midst of the peaks, the trees, the streams and the boulders.

Knit from the bottom up, the mountains grow out of a 1x1 rib and into a smooth stockinette crown. They’re shaped with a series of increases and decreases, nothing tricky, just satisfying knitting.
