BRIGHT. THOUGHTFUL. FUN.

Seriously. Could this hat BE any cooler? Like the Friend that inspired it, Chandler is smart, casual…and a little scared of commitment! Turn up the brim, and it’s a toque. Turn down the brim and it’s a slouchy hat. Don’t knit a brim, and it’s a beanie. Use one colour, or two, or three. Add a pom. Don’t add a pom. No matter what kind of hat you want to knit, Chandler’s got you covered!
