Colborne Hat Knitting Pattern (PDF) by Phibersmith Designs
This hat features a double-thick brim for extra cozy ears and enough slouch to adorably mask even the most ferocious bedhead. Couple that with a simple, sophisticated lace pattern, and a gauge that knits up quick in a silky mohair blend, this might be the most thoughtful hat you’ll ever meet. No wonder it was born in Canada.
