Short Description: Something about this hat, with it’s cables and and seed stitch panel, reminds me of fall college football Saturdays. It looks good on both men and women, and the stockinette stitch makes it a quick knit too. It seemed fitting to do the photo shoot at my alma mater, the University of Notre Dame. Go Irish!
