I adore braids in knitted items. Braids add such a nice touch of class and sophistication and are perfect for any outfit. This is a chic hat perfect for both dressy and jeans-t outfits. It's not a slouchy hat; it's not a pillbox hat. It's an in-between hat. The hat band has a lovely Aran braid bordered by a mock I-cord. This hat is knitted in the round with worsted weight yarn. It's a two-in-one pattern. You can also knit only the headband portion for a classy ear warmer/headband.
