    About Cian

    Cian (Kee-an) by Emily Greene is another instant classic, featuring Emily’s architectural slanting cables, textures, and pleasing symmetry. Made for gatherings around fall campfires, weekend hikes, and blustery days, this go-to hat will surely be stuffed into coat pockets from fall through the winter.

    This beanie is worked in the round from the bottom up. The hat is work from a chart through the crown decreases for a simple, straightforward project that will have you itching to cast on another.

    Designed for Hudson + West Co's Forge - you need 1 skein.
