I love this hat because the wide, double-thickness brim means it will actually put up a good fight against the biting winter winds we get here in Michigan. I'm also digging the weird, quasi-experimental decreases and the simple textures. Subbing the picots out for a purl row will butch this hat right up, for anyone in your life who isn't the "picot" type but who still needs warm ears.
And apparently, it just looks good with glasses.
