A perfect hat for a long walk along the mossy coast of a Scottish loch, where you can smell the smoky peat and the wind howls over the cliffs. As your faithful dog runs alongside you, and the sun silently glistens over the deep water, your warm ears are gently hugged by this soulful hat. A rustic hat knit with rustic yarn, Laphroaig is ready to accompany you wherever you may roam.
Laphroaig is a beanie style garter stitch hat with one large cable. It is knit in the round using a combination of knit and purl stitches and an effortless cable pattern.
