We couldn’t find a pattern to match this ever-popular commercial hat we’ve been seeing in our streets for weeks. So, we came up with our own. We also haven’t found a single person who doesn’t look fantastic wearing this hat. The twisted-ribbed brim and the “accordion-like” crown flawlessly hug all head shapes and sizes. It’s a fast knit, too. We’re certain you’ll knit a few Central Ave hats.
Central Ave is knit in the round from the brim up. Instructions include 3 sizes and all measurements are given in US and metric.
