Twined hat made from split spruce root. Construction originates in the top center and radiates outward. Narrows toward the flattened top and flares outward toward the bottom rim. The upper half uses two-strand twining while the lower half uses a combination of two and three-strand twining to create a concentric diamond or "scoop-net for taking candlefish" pattern (Frances Paul, 1944 p. 60). The rim has rows of two and three-strand twining with a final row that is twined in the opposite direction. A hat band encircles the center of the interior.
