Evoke the deep furrows and raised edges of traditional printmaking with the Woodblock Hat. Punctuations of reverse stockinette highlight the sharp angles of this unisex design which can be knit in beanie, slouchy, and watchcap styles. Worked from the brim up, regal triangles of texture coalesce in a starburst crown of raised knit stitches. Equally stunning inside and out, this fully reversible design will intrigue and cocoon you season after season. And with Peerie’s sparkling palette of Merino, you’ll be hard-pressed to stop at just one.

We love Ever Greene so much that we decided to make it even easier for you to own the whole collection! Purchase the four-pattern bundle on BrooklynTweed.com and pay $6 less than the sum of the single patterns purchased separately. The designer will still receive their full commission and you will have filled out your library with a classic array of modern, all-weather staples.

Join our Ever Greene KAL, knit with new friends and transform those skeins into favorite fresh looks.

Please note: the stitch patterns used for this accessory include written as well as charted instructions.
