A simple cap to keep in your coat pocket for nippy mornings or windy walks at the coast, Isthmus comes with options to suit your personal style. Knit a fitted beanie or a slouchy version with garter earflaps and a taller crown — even a pompom, if you like. Printed with garter triangles and spangled with a star at the crown, this hat is a quick knit in Quarry.
