Put on a little Skater or Snowboard Chic! Whether you are heading to the slopes, or just downtown, the versatile Brock Beanie will fit in to the hip crowd.
Slouchy or snug, long or short, this beanie (or "toque", as we say in Canada) looks fabulous on guys and gals alike. The farrow rib makes it super-stretchy, and raglan shaping at the top keeps the ribbing going straight to the peak! (No swirls around the crown.) Instructions are included to make the slouch permanent by sewing in a tuck at the back (modelled by Steven in the images.)
Knit in an aran-weight yarn, this textured hat is one you will reach for time and again!
