Meet Skipp, a classic yet versatile hat meant to be your constant companion on many an adventure, whether it’s out for a Sunday brunch or on a bicycle ride around the city. Worked in single-color Brioche, two-color Brioche, or a combination of the two, Skipp is boldly graphic while retaining a comforting texture, thanks to woolen-spun Loft. Precisely placed crown decreases that merge seamlessly with the ribbed fabric also make Skipp polished at any length, be it a close-fitting beanie, relaxed and slouchy, or doubled-over at the brim like a watchcap. Change the look of this hat by alternating stripes or blocks of colors with single-color or two-color brioche as you work — and enjoy knitting up a special one for every day of the week, every member of the family, or all of the above!
