Thoughtful details — seamless transitions from the brim ribbing to the cables, hidden crown decreases, and optional tubular edges — also combine for an overall polished effect. Choose between two brim styles and top off with a jaunty pom-pom, or leave unadorned to showcase the vanishing cable motifs.
