Appearance

The Squid-Stitch Cap is a flat-brimmed cap with a pattern similar to houndstooth that changes color to match that of the wearer's ink. On top of the brim is a somewhat large sticker with Skalop's logo in black and gold. The hat is worn at a slight angle, and on the back is a small version of the Skalop logo in black and white. In Splatoon 3, the cap can be rotated to instead face backwards using the 'Adjust Gear' feature.
