Enjoy the syncopated ridges of Kas’ textural fabric and fall into fond memories of that perfectly intact seashell, found at the end of a long day at the beach. Simple pleasures and straightforward textures form the perfect marriage in this warm and cozy cap composed of clever cable crosses and garter rib. Delightful in Tones’ overdyed shades, this beanie will see you warm from autumn to spring.
