The entire time I was working on this hat I kept calling it ‘the magical beanie’ in my head. Why? With all that ribbing it can fit a variety of heads and will magically grow to the right size. Calling that it my head led me to start thinking about that episode of The Office where Jim trades Dwight junk for some magical legumes. And so the name of the hat was born: Legume.
