The Design

"For blustery days."

Freshy Ahmadian Millsap designed this versatile beanie for her brother-in-law, an architect in Chicago. It had to look smart for meetings and a little hip for weekends. And it had to keep the ‘Windy City’ wind out of his ears. Check, check, and check! The dense tweed stitch pattern takes on a handsome honeycomb look when worn inside out—’cuz that happens.

This version of our Windy City Cap is knit in Brooklyn Tweed Tones, a worsted-weight yarn that’s woolen spun from American Columbia fleece. Its round, springy 3-ply construction provides fantastic stitch definition, and its loftiness means your sweater will be nice and cozy! Plus, Tones has a creative approach to color—Brooklyn Tweed uses traditional overdye techniques to create Overtones and Undertones, pairs of gorgeous, tonal colors!
