The iron barque, Sixtus, was the biggest sailing ship on Fanø. As a tribute to the gorgeous figurehead on Sixtus, I have designed a hat and a kerchief with South American undertones.

SIXTUS. The hat is knit from the bottom up and in the round. The hat is beautifully suited for leftovers in that only a little yarn is used of each colour. You do not need all the colours I have used, so there are many plenty of possibilities for play.
