Pendant trios of bobbles framed in cable shields decorate this ornate hat. A ground of reverse stockinette throws the motifs into high relief and shows off Arbor’s capacity for rendering crisp stitchwork. Laurel is designed for a close fit; the elastic tubular cast-on and double-ribbed brim make it stretchy enough to fit most adult heads.
