The Skew series consists of a minimum of three stitch patterns separated by angular transitions which form a parallelogram of ribbing in the central area. Subsequent versions in the series will follow these basic parameters.

Skew Foxtrot is the sixth in the series. 2x2 ribbing along the brim sets up a diagonal transition into shifted 6x2 ribbing sections. The shift is marked by a thin, angular stockinette band. Laying flat in a relaxed state it measures approximately 12in(30.5cm) in length and 20in(51cm) in circumference.

This beanie is made from a recycled lamb's wool blend consisting of Lamb's Wool(50%), Nylon(38%) and Angora(12%). The color is a rich brown with flecks of visible angora fibers. The thinness of this yarn creates a finely knit fabric, ideal for moderate climates and urban wear. It's knit loosely to open up the ribbing and create a relaxed silhouette.

Keep it in tip top shape by hand washing it in a mild detergent, and then drying it flat. Remember that wool is hair, so if you'd like to use shampoo or body wash go right ahead. You can also use conditioner to add some sheen. Wool is excellent at wicking away moisture, so water goes right through it. When drying do not wring or twist, instead just squeeze. You can also roll it up in a towel and step on it a few times. Then lay it flat to dry completely.
