When I was growing up, one of my family’s favorite summer day trips was Portsmouth. Another coastal town,one of the things I remember most about Portsmouth is all of the bricks. There were only a few brick houses in my hometown, so I was always excited to go see the gorgeous brick buildings and sidewalks. As a young child, Portsmouth seemed to have a sort of timeless magic, and as I continued to visit summer after summer I never stopped being charmed by the place.

In that spirit, I wanted a charming hat-one that would stand up to time, like the town that inspired it. The textured body of the hat is reminiscent of the brickwork that made such an impression on me as a child. While being the simplest hat in this collection, it is still easy to wear and evokes a timeless style.

Pattern includes both charts & written instructions.
