This handsome stocking cap in five sizes (XS/S/M/L/XL) lends just the right finishing touch to any outfit, from urban bike commuter to maxi skirt and suede boots. The mainstay of its cozy, grandpa texture is a classic thermal rib stitch, defined by ribbed cables at each side. The reversible fabric can be rolled up at the brim for a snug fit or worn flat for a slouchy look. Either way, this good looking cap forms a nice cozy cocoon around the head and ears.
