A quick, reversible hat to knit with fun textured arrows around the brim to push you forward! Perfect for pulling on and heading into the woods for a trail run under the leaves.

The inspiration for this hat came to me during a crisp, evening run. I wanted a lightweight, comfortable beanie to throw on when heading out for a run or hike. I chose the arrow motif as a friendly reminder to push on. With the perfect amount of slouch and unique texture this is a great little hat to throw on anytime and looks great on both men and women!

The instructions for the textured brim are both written and charted.
