Polaris Hat

Available today! The
Polaris Hat designed by Alex Tinsley. Originally published as part of the Twisted Single Skein Club June 2011.


One of the easiest stars to spot in the night sky is Polaris – the North Star. Since about 500CE, Earth’s north pole has pointed right to it, so it seems to stay nearly motionless while other stars rotate around it.

Pop this hat with its adorable star-patterned crown on the top of your own head and, who knows, maybe all other hats will rotate around you…
