Pattern Description:

Vancouver is full of hipsters: tall guys in skinny jeans
with no asses and ladies with artfully dishevelled hair

this nonchalant but epic style naturally, right? WRONG.
They work at it EVERY DAY. It is NOT EASY.
Here is the perfect knit for your favourite hipster: classic
but a tiny bit edgy and inside-out looking, to maintain
that 'I don't give a damn' ethos. Hipster can be knit aran
or DK weight yarn and is sized from proto-hipster baby to
'I wish I was still a hipster' Dad.
