Boon Island by Aimee Alexander
Boon Island is a unisex hat knit in the round from the brim up. Its simple Cracked Rib patterning is easily memorized making it a perfect social project. It can be worn slouchy or beanie-style with the brim folded depending on weather and mood. The tailored decreases give this otherwise casual hat a polished appearance.
