The Design

“Quiet or bold—your choice!”

Take our favorite Basic Beanie and give it a few little tweaks—a little stitch pattern, a little stripe, a little slouch—and what do you get? This handsome topper! A textured ‘granite ridge’ stitch outlines a color-blocked band that can be as be as quiet or bold as you please. With a casually rolled brim, it has just the right amount of easy-going charm.

In Rowan’s Softyak DK, the coolness of cotton is blended with clouds of downy yak fiber. Due to its touch of nylon and the chainette construction, it knits into a gently springy fabric (with a lovely drape after a nice rinse). The cotton and yak fibers absorb color differently, so the palette is made up of pretty shades and slight mélange effects. And it’s durable, washable, and oh-so-soft.
