DAUNTLESS

COLOR WORK HAT

Dauntless = showing fearlessness and determination.


This cozy hat inspires just such spirited boldness with its beautiful geometric patterns. Featuring a ribbed brim and striking stranded color work, it is worked in the round from the bottom up. Floats carried along the inside of the work create a warm, double-layered fabric. Worked in 100% alpaca yarn, Dauntless is the ultimate in softness and warmth! Pair with Gallant fingerless mitts for a cozy matching set.
