The stacked ribs of this cap form a classically rugged texture that mimics the craggy landscape in the hills surrounding the Spinnery. This dense ribbed hat has been designed for extra warmth; it’s built-in stretch creates a snug comforting fit that warms the ears. Yarn is held double throughout the pattern creating a very dense fabric that is perfect for Vermont winters.

It can be knit up in a winter’s evening by the fire, making it a great choice for a last minute gift.
