Look no further than the Gammans hat and cowl set when outfitting yourself for cool weather adventures. Show off your style with Arbor’s extensive palette; will your color story be retro, sophisticated, or laid-back? Both the modified moss stitch and slip stitch colorwork motifs come charted and written to suit a wide range of pattern reading preferences.

The Gammans hat can be knit in either a classic beanie or slouchy length version. The Gammans cowl can be knit as a short single loop or longer double wrap version.

Please note: the stitch patterns used for these accessories include written as well as charted instructions.
