Product details

Whorls featuring circle designs have been found at archaeological sites around the globe; the circle-with-dot is nearly as widespread. The whorl that inspired this particular design came from a Roman-era Coptic site (Egypt), but similar whorls have been retrieved from German, Sassanian (Iran), Bactrian (Afghanistan), and Mexican sites.

This beanie features a variation on the banjo cable with a two-row nupp in the center to mimic the common circle-with-dot motif.

Measurements are made with hat blocked and stretched to appear like the example. This is a very stretchy hat due to the ribbing, and will fit a head up to 4 inches [10cm] larger than circumference noted.
