Brooklyn Tweed

Proof Hat


Jared Flood’s Proof Hat is a traditional beanie with graphic modern texture. The tubular double-ribbed brim flows into a motif of crisscrossing forked ribs. Channels of cartridge rib add a second layer of deep texture to create a striking cap for everyone, knit in Arbor with its companion the Proof Scarf. Brooklyn Tweed considers the Proof Hat a level 3 out of 5 in difficulty. For more information about materials, gauge, and size, please click Product Details, above.
