Short Description: Sliver is the basic hat everyone needs, and that’s why it’s been designed in five sizes – XS through XL. Knit in the round, Sliveris unisex and can be worn by kids, too. A yarn forward and dropped stitches create a ‘run’ in the hat. Sliver is named after one of my favorite Nirvana songs, and the first test sample of this hat was knit in olive green, inspired by Kurt Cobain’s memorable ragged green cardigan.
