Out of the Darkness


This stunning pattern, with signature cables and swirling stitch patterns, comes with both a beanie and tam version.


Hat Description

Out of the Darkness comes in two versions – beanie and beret. Both have a folded brim. Out of the brim grow lines that move to the left, then move to the right. As they change direction every other line stops. The remaining lines continue moving around the Hat to the right and swirl as they come together for the crown.
