Ever walk across the Brooklyn Bridge on a chilly fall afternoon? It’s a time-honored NY tradition and the inspiration for Brooklyn by Meghan Babin. The hat captures the arches and suspension cords of the iconic landmark with interlocking cables and columns of twisted stitches. Brooklyn is worked from the bottom up in the round, starting with a crochet provisional cast on and a fold over brim for extra warmth.
