The Manhattan Hat is named after the NYC borough that I call home. This pattern was inspired by store-bought hats that I saw on stylish people all around the city and I wanted to make my own hand-knit version. The Manhattan Hat has quickly become a staple in my wardrobe and I hope you find it to be just the same. The pattern includes 6 sizes from baby to adult large as well as 3 brim options to customize to your liking!
