Staccato peaks of color iterate across the smooth plane of the Otte hat. Evoking wintery adventures and pristine mountain ranges, this stranded hat offers ample opportunity for creative colorplay in Arbor’s gem-toned palette. Circularly knit from brim to crown, choose to emphasize an inner chevron of sharp contrast or engage with gradients for a softer look.
