From Ravelry pattern page:
My studio has a wonderful view of the New York Harbor. I love to watch the ferries, cruise ships, cargo ships and sail boats as I work on new designs. As I knit I marvel at the activity taking place on the water every day. While New York City hustles and bustles, so do its waterways, almost like a city unto themselves. I was inspired to design this hat as I thought about the people who work on the water through all seasons. Winter winds are biting here, so a warm hat is critical. Ferry in the Harbor is the sort of hat that would suit the needs of these sailors very nicely. Stranded colorwork creates an extra layer of warmth to block out those winds. The colors that I used for the design were inspired by the grey of the harbor on a cold day, and the bright orange Staten Island Ferry as it makes its frequent trips.
