I have big hair, and lots of it. What I hate most about that are hats that squish it down, the result – triangle hair. With that in mind I designed this hat to be loose enough not to flatten the life out of it, but also one that stays on my head.This hat is a quick knit with a very simple cable that is subtle and soft on the forehead.
