We have an old beach park in the Old Town part of our town; it is sandy with tall grass even now in the approaching winter. We love to take our walks there, especially our dog Lucy, who looks like a dolphin weaving in and out of the grass. With temperatures dropping so fast, all the warm winter accessories have been pulled out, but even then there is always a place for a new cozy hat.

Old Town Hat is a bottom up beanie that features dramatic and unusual cables. The hat has a regular ribbed brim, however the design also has a folded brim option for that extra warmth should you need it.

I hope you will find the pattern engaging. The design, been unisex in nature, offers something for everyone in your family.
