Brioche makes for a cushy, squishy hat that will keep your ears toasty in the coldest winds.

Welted stripes add a textural contrast to the deep brioche and break the monotony of the ribbing. The continuation of some of the ribs creates a fun asymmetrical look.

And just like Harold, this hat will become an old friend.
