Specs & Details
The Setesdal Hat is our recommended point of entry into Arne & Carlos’s world of wonder. The motifs originated in the Setesdal Valley in southern Norway.
The potential for color experimentation on this quick knit is excellent—going light or dark for the main color will change the effect completely.
