This stylish hat, in the tradition of the classic “deerstalker” hat, has two earflaps that tie on the top, and a subtly shaped front and back brim. Knit from airy Brooklyn Tweed, it is sure to become a staple in your wardrobe. It is knit from the bottom up, and has a turned seamed hem at the bottom edge to stablilze the structure and design elements.

“Now the skillful workman is very careful indeed as to what he takes into his brain-attic. He will have nothing but the tools which may help him in doing his work, but of these he has a large assortment, and all in the most perfect order. It is a mistake to think that little room has elastic walls and can distend to any extent. Depend upon it there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.” ~ A Study in Scarlet
