Aaron features an original stitch design that recalls the delightful summer rain coursing down a windowpane. To complement this fun-to-knit stitch pattern, the classic single rib is added to create textural contrast. The decorative backside suggests a cable pattern and makes Aaron reversible. This unisex hat is knitted in the round from the bottom up and comes in three sizes that can be worked to beanie or slouchy length.

The coordinating Aaron fingerless mitts pattern is available for purchase separately.
