Andraos

$8.00 USD

Like the marbled top of a Parisian confection, the slanted checkerboard of the Andraos hat is simply scrumptious. Using stranded colorwork techniques and controlled color dominance, this hat is a showstopper in both solids and marls. Opt for high–contrast colors for a dramatic statement or tone it down with related colorways to complement any ensemble. Rounding out this design are a gathered crown and deep brim — the real icing on the cake of this new classic.

Please note: the stitch patterns used for this accessory are charted only.
