I designed this hat for my wonderful daughter, Erin. It's the perfect accessory for the crisp autumn days, football games and tailgating; these are a few of Erin’s favorite things. Her hat is perfect whether you’re cheering on your favorite college team or just taking a walk on a brisk fall day. A beautiful band of cables travels around the brim ending with a smart decreased, cabled buttonhole section. The stockinette section and uniform decreases on the crown finish off this simple but classic hat. Add a special button and you’re set for cooler weather and the crunch of leaves under foot!
