Rubbish Mojitos is a modern, stylish slouchy Hat designed specifically for sock yarn! Travelling stitches work their way around the body of the Hat, coming towards the crown in a spiral pattern. The deep brim provides comfort and warmth.
This pattern can handle just about any colourway!
And the name…? This Hat (or rather, it’s swatch) was cast on during an evening of mojitos. And not all of the mojitos were all that great, yet they kept on coming…
