The Branching Out Beanie features a nature-inspired cable motif that resembles growing tree branches. Designed for a snug but stretchy fit, the classic ribbed brim and crisp-looking decreases lend to a tailored style that is comfortable and universally flattering.
The Branching Out Beanie pattern includes two versions so you can wear it with a short, traditional brim, or a longer folded brim for a watchman cap style. Variations are included to customize fit.
