Irish Immigrant Thomas Ellis arrived in the Okanagan in the late 1860s and was the first European settler in the area known today as Penticton. Ellis established himself as a cattle rancher and by the 1890s, his empire spanned from South Okanagan all the way to the Canada-US Border. Today, Ellis Street, named after the cattle baron, runs through the Kelowna Cultural District and ends at the base of Knox Mountain.

This hat is knit bottom up and includes sizing for the whole family and a slouchy or beanie version.
