Link is an apt name for this modern take on the classic cabled beanie, which features bold columns of paired rope cables interconnected by branching diagonal twists. Thoughtfull details - seamless transitions from the brim ribbing to the cables, hidden crown decreases and optional tubular edges - also combine for an overall polished effect. Choose between two brim styles and top off with a jaunty pom pom or leave unadorned to showcase the vanishing cable motifs. Designed by Emily Greene.
