“This hat is inspired by rock formations, such as those found at Lulworth Cove in Dorset, where immense geological forces have deformed and folded the layers of rock, helping to create the landscape.” It is worked in the round from the bottom up using the stranded method for the colorwork section. The single rib brim is worn folded and the hat is topped with a pompom.
