FINN is simple to knit and the subtle texture highlights the beauty of hand-dyed yarn. The hat can be worn a variety of ways to flatter many faces and is fully reversible. Wear it with the double-thickness brim folded up snugly rounded to your head like a traditional watch cap or higher on the head for a modern square-top look. Or unfold the brim and wear it slouchy like a stocking cap. With plenty of yarn to spare you can easily customize the depth of both the hat and the brim to your liking.
