Spaid is an enchantingly crisp, hourglass cable hat that is delightfully simple to work. The twisted rib brim and repeating twisted stockinette cable pattern are so profoundly tidy and chipper. This hat fits close to the head and would look beautiful with a faux fur pom pom, if you can bear to cover up that smart crown.
