I’ve been dreaming about creating a cabbie hat for years. Long ago when I worked at Free People, we sold a similar hat that was this shape. I wore mine everywhere and still morn the loss of it! Finally, we have our own, fun Knit Collage version. I love the shape and the little brim that the designer Laurel got to sit just right! This pattern will work well with either 2 skeins of our Dreamland yarn or 1 mini skein sampler kit.
