In Celtic, the name Vardon means “From the green hill.” The rolling cables remind me of all the lovely green pictures you see of Celtic nations. Beautiful! I adore cables, so this beanie is a great treat to wear, for either gender, and a pompom is optional. (Curt wishes for a pompom on all his hats and therefore it had to have one. Dorky, but we all adore him for it!).
