This deeply textured, cabled watch cap has a twist: the cabled fabric that adorns the main body of the hat is mirrored on the faux fold-over brim. The shape of the crown and the classic OXO cable motifs are a nostalgic nod to the woolen workwear of fishermen. Forge is worked from the top down, so you can customize the finished length to form an elfin peak or a close beanie fit. Brim and body are worked separately and joined with a clean, decorative bind-off around the hat’s base.
Knit Forge in a bright accent color or a subtle, natural tone and add a rugged, classic note to your wardrobe when the weather turns cold.
