This unisex hat is the garnishment for our Seacliff cardigan, gaining it’s inspiration from the towering cliffs of the northern coastlines. There you will find the Kittiwake, nesting along the highest regions of the steep rocks that line the cold seas of the arctic. These small birds begin their lives in the danger and uncertainty of the windy cliff side and forge ahead to the seas to survive.The texture and cable detail mimic the cliffs in which they dwell. In addition to aesthetics, the textured stitches also act as a thermal fabric to keep you nice and warm during your next visit to the arctic. It is sure to be your new favorite cozy hat!
Features The Seacliff hat is worked seamlessly in the round from the bottom up with optional pom pom embellishment to make with your left over yarn. The brim is constructed to be folded. Cabled and textured stitches are both charted and written for your choice to follow. Links to helpful video tutorials are also provided!
