This appealing cap in five sizes (XS/S/M/L/XL) is destined to be a favorite friend on chilly days. With a delicious cable-and-rib texture to satisfy any appetite, it’s a fitting unisex topper for all ages. Knit with a double brim for extra warmth around the ears, it can easily be worked with a trim single brim for a smooth urban style. Choose a light, airy yarn to achieve that slouchy soft “plop” or a denser, tightly spun yarn for more prominant stitch definition.
