New Pattern Available: Salty Dog Men's Hat

Little rough around the edges and weather worn, but there is a twinkle in his eye.  And he’s polite with the ladies, sometimes overly so, until he gets brave enough to ask if she finds salty language objectionable.  Depending on how she answers, that twinkle might just become a full-on sparkle and lopsided grin. Thoroughly masculine, with just enough styling to make him stand out.  Very elastic, for comfort.  Fold it, roll it, wear it slouched; a hat for every man.
