Limerick

$10.00

Limerick is a Hat that likes to bend the rules. Instead of the usual multiples for a beret, here we work with the number five. There are 5 lines spiraling around the body of the Hat which is knit on the bias to emphasis the shape and create its unique structure. Full of character, Limerick is sure to charm.

 

Hat Description

Limerick is a moss (seed) stitch beret with 5 spirals of knit stitches that gently bias around the Hat to the left. The shaping is worked around these lines creating an unusual 5 point spiral at the crown. The brim features twisted stitches against wide purl stitch ribs.
