Don’t spend late winter indoors looking out. Knit up Fair Lane and go adventuring! Fair Lane features a wide fold up brim to keep your ears two-layer cozy, while an intriguing allover cable pattern resolves to a rapidly decreased crown giving the hat just the right amount of pooch. Finally, a large pom has then been added just for a bit of whimsy.
