Aslyn is a fun-to-knit and easy-to-wear hat featuring beautifully simple textures that together have a dramatic effect. The hemmed, twisted rib brim transitions uninterrupted into a unique, allover lattice texture, which then blends organically into the crown shaping. This hat looks great in both variegated and solid colorways and worn either snug or slouchy!
