This deeply textured watchcap has a twist: the cabled fabric adorning the main body of the hat is mirrored on the faux fold-over brim. The shape of the crown and the classic OXO cable motifs are a nostalgic nod to the woolen workwear of fishermen. Forge is worked from the top down, so you can customize the finished length to form an elfin peak or a close beanie fit. Brim and body are worked separately and joined with a clean, decorative bind-off around the hat’s base.
Knit Forge in a bright accent color or a subtle natural tone and add a rugged, classic note to your wardrobe when the weather turns cold.
Note: This pattern was originally released in September, 2012 with our BT Fall 12 collection. The pattern was updated to include new styling and photos in our BT Ganseys Collection in March of 2016.
