Reminiscent of a crown made out of leaves, the wide intricate horizontal cable band forms the hat body and evolves into a tapering vertical cable rib that helps to form the hat’s crown. The decorative cast on affirms the romantic nature of this hat while a twisted rib is chosen for the brim to complement the overall look.
