Carroll by Meghan Babin is a super cozy, extra squishy Fisherman's rib and cabled hat to keep you and your loved ones heads warm all winter long. Made in our soft + springy Weld, this lightweight beanie is made for wearing both indoors and outdoors all day long.
The 2x2 deep foldover brim flows seamlessly into the rib + cable motif. The crown decreases cleverly dissipate the cables for a polished, super fun, and quick knit!
