Filigrees of mirrored cables climb, column-like, up the surface of Hinoki. Bracketing garter stitch blocks, the stark relief of this elegant beanie is enhanced by Peerie’s plump fabric. Worked circularly from the brim up and culminating in a delicate floral crown, this one-skein wonder is as thoughtful as it is beautiful.
