Inspired by the mature trees that grow throughout the city of Chicago. They are too big to wrap your arms around, yet they spring out of sidewalks down many streets in Lakeview.

This reversible hat mimics the patterns of tree bark. It makes a beautiful design worn either way and is suitable for men and women. The smocking pattern creates a distinct cable look on one side and an interesting rib pattern on the other.
