BILLY is a top-down knitted beanie which allows you to better adjust the length. A set of slipped stitches gives it a ribbed look. The 3/3 ribbed cuff is finished with a contrasting color to highlight the main color. BILLY will be perfect for keeping you warm without taking too much space when you want to slip it into a pocket or bag!
