Greet the day with an urban edge in this unisex hat written for Arbor. Striated with contrasting scales of ribbing that march toward the crown, Hatch is accessible to bold beginners while also offering more experienced knitters an engaging rhythm. Whether knit to classic beanie length or worked with a longer brim and worn folded back watchcap style, Hatch’s motifs open up beautifully when stretched snugly over one’s head.



  • 175 (225) yards of DK weight wool yarn


  • 2 skeins Brooklyn Tweed Arbor (100% American Targhee wool; 145 yards/50g)
  • Photographed in color Potion (Beanie) and Porter (Watchcap)
