Pattern: Odiorne

For several months I'd been toying with the idea of a hat just covered in nupps. I did some sketching, some swatching, and while I was always charmed by the results it didn't really go anywhere until I started planning this collection. Gorham and Hampton were really easy to plan, and I was toying with what other towns I wanted to include when the idea of a nupp-covered hat popped into my head again. This time, I realized that it felt just like how I remembered Odiorne Point State Park-pebbles, barnacles, and seashells everywhere, little snails clinging to every rock, and tide pools filled with mussels.

I would spend hours exploring-I filled buckets with all the rocks and shells I picked up, and I never tired of seeing a rock encrusted with barnacles and snails. In a similar spirit, this hat embodies all the little joys in life-small collectibles picked up during everyday adventures, the spirit of exploration, and the excitement of finding something new in a familiar landscape. This is a hat for observing the special moments in an ordinary day, and for finding fun wherever you may be.
