Triton is a unisex hat. Triton is a mythological Greek god, the messenger of the sea. He is the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite, god and goddess of the sea respectively, and is herald for his father. He is represented as a merman, having the upper body of a human and the tail of a fish, “sea-hued”, according to Ovid “his shoulders barnacled with sea-shells”.

This hat has versatility, plenty of waves, cables and twisted stitches. It may be made many shapes and head sizes. I hope that you will discover your favorite style, then make one for you and one for a friend.

Finished Dimensions before blocking: Rib band measures about 18(20, 22, 24) “, if you get gauge. Your hat will stretch quite a lot, so keep in mind how you are blocking your hat. If you wash the hat and lay it flat it won’t stretch as much as using a dinner plate to block the hat.
