As mid-summer approaches, the salmon are steadily moving into the spawning waters here in Southeast Alaska. The textural details of this hat remind me of the salmon as they make their way upstream, jumping over each other and flipping around as they fight their way up.

Using one entire hank of The Best of The Worsted yarn, this hat:

  • is knit in the round

  • can be sized up (use two hanks of yarn) or down by multiple of 6

  • is great for both men and women
