a hat that's too cool for school
by Alexa Ludeman

Vancouver is full of hipsters: tall guys in skinny jeans with no asses and chicks with artfully dishevelled hair and oversized glasses clad in ill-fitting coats and mismatched prints.

The hipster is clearly too cool for school, and they come by this nonchalant but epic style naturally, right? WRONG. They work at it EVERY DAY. It is NOT EASY.

This hat is the perfect knit for your favourite hipster: classic but a tiny bit edgy and inside-out looking, to maintain that 'I don't give a damn' ethos. Hipster can be knit in aran or DK weight yarn in sizes from proto-hipster baby to 'I wish I was still a hipster' Dad.
