In each of our lives there is someone that comes to mind immediately when we hear the phrase ‘classic gentleman’. This could be a friend, a family member, a movie star or even yourself. They have simple, but impeccable taste in life and in fashion, and a simple, no-fuss love for the classics that have stood the test of time.

This pattern emulates the simple classic of combined cables and ribbing. It is perfect for the person in your life that loves classic lines and the warmth that only a hand knit hat can provide. It is knit from the bottom up and has enough brim length to be folded up and customized to the perfect fit. It features a crown motif that emerges from the decreasing cables, so even the view from the top down looks refined.
