A standard ribbed hat with a twist - twisted stitches and simple cabling create a wood grain appearance in a luxurious brown sportweight yarn. The twisted rib creates a very stretchy material that will fit many head sizes. Choose a yarn with a soft hand and good stitch definition for the best result. The Woodgrain Hat works for men and women alike.
