Harbormaster is a unisex hat knit in the round from the brim up. Its simple Cracked Rib patterning is easily memorized making it a perfect social project. It can be worn slouchy or beanie-style with the brim folded depending on weather and mood. The tailored decreases give this otherwise casual hat a polished appearance.

Harbormaster is conveniently written for 3 sizes and all measurements are given in US and metric.
