A classic slouchy hat shape with a hem instead of the standard rib start – this hat is loosely based on the Voyageur hats of history.
This modern take on the classic shape is further updated with geometric patterns of squares and stripes in a gridline format. The slouchy shaping is then gathered up and embellished with a leather strap and wonderful detail buttons. The hem of the cap can have a message or name knitted in or be left plain - charts are available to knit in “Buffalo Wool Co” or there are blank charts so that you can create and knit in your own message!kit contains: Natural: 400 yd of Tracks - Natural & 15 tracks minis assorted colors, 2 buttons & bison leather strap & pdf pattern
