Here’s a snuggly, warm, soft, hat in two sizes big enough to fit a large or larger-than-average ladies’ or men’s head.

A lovely, honeycomb-style pattern stitch reminiscent of the slatey texture left in sand/rocks after receding water, provides visual interest as well as insulating warm pockets of air. A five-pointed star or 12-arm swirl draws the crown together into a basic beanie fit.
