The OA


The perfect hat for an Original Angel...

Chunky cables and no seaming? Yes, please! Inspired by a hat worn by Prairie Johnson in the Netflix original series The OA, this quick-knit rolled-brim toque (or the alternate brimless beanie) knits up in bulky yarn in only a couple of hours—or the time it takes to binge-watch a couple of episodes. Make the included “Transcendence Cowl” as the perfect neck-warming complement! (Included in pattern booklet.)
