Hoya by Samantha Guerin was inspired by the Hoya plant, which begins as a single heart-shaped leaf and grows into a beautiful trailing vine. This hat is available in both a beanie (modeled) + slouch version with a folder brim. This hat is worked from the bottom up using an (optional) tubular cast on. Shown here in Midnight and Lake, two analogous shades of blue, the motif lends itself well to either high or low-contrast variations.
