The Bramble Hat is meant to be worn on woodsy walks, stomping through snow drifts and braving chilly breezes. It knits up quickly and easily – even if you’ve never tried cables before.
This is a loosely-knit, slightly slouchy hat that will complement any winter outfit. Add a cute pom pom or try a faux fur one for fun!
