Three delicate lines turn this hat into a work of art.
The Syíqm hat fits men, women and children with a ribbed band and just the right amount of room on top.
Organic cotton is ideal for hats. It is smooth, breathes well, and provides coziness without being stuffy.In the words of the artist:
"When I knit, it's the embellishments, the small details, that seem the most personal. Three simple lines (blades of grass? feathers? what do you see?) that make the knitting mine, which in turn makes me more exposed, vulnerable. Just three little lines."
Syíqm (or shyAḵem) is the Nlaka'pamuxcin word for different grasses, those that stand tall and green in the spring, and those that wave, delicate and golden, in the autumn winds.
Designed and handknit beside the river in Lytton, BC.
