A comfortable summer hat, sized child to adult, in eye-catching V stitch and cool cotton yarn. The sloped brim keeps the sun out of your eyes and two crown fit options ensure a comfortable fit. The flexibility of the V stitch makes the hat easy to wear over sunglasses and there are several finishing options to choose from in order to get a shape and style that suits each wearer.
