Inspired by the local granite mined in Bethel, Vermont, the simple stitch pattern has a subtle chiseled texture suitable for wearers of any gender.

The pattern contains instructions for 3 sizes:

This design can be worn with the hat upright or folded on the head depending on your preference. Choose a size that is close to or slightly smaller than the wearer’s head circumference.
