A simple hat features neat twisted ribbing stitches, a turned brim, and relaxed fit. Designed at the request of my son, who was seeking a practical and funky hat to wear. As he is an avid surfer, I decided to name this beanie after one of Australia’s iconic surf spots, Bells Beach. Not just for teens, this is a perfect all rounder for everyone in the family.
