Bowline: A Seafaring Cap from Tin Can Knits
The Bowline beanie has a great fit and designed for our FisherFolk event and Cordova Gansey Project. Works well with our Alaska Fisherman Yarn, a well as our locally hand dyed Snow Capped Yarns Gravina (Targhee) if you are looking for a softer option ( see also additional colors below).
We have been knitting it lately in Quince and Co. Osprey. You can contact the shop for ordering Osprey as we have a full selection of colors, via phone or email as we are unable to post online.
