Among the Trees
The winding branches of these magnificent trees inspired this hat, Among the Trees. This perspective of the tree trunks fading away and branches stretching out into a vast canopy is recreated with all-over cables.
Among the Trees is a seamless hat design. It is created in the round from the brim up to the crown. Twisting cables weave their way along the body of the hat and create a flowering crown.
