This hat is styled for folks who are out and about in the cold -
This hat will keep you warm no matter what weather comes your way. In the Arctic you might want to add a wind proof outer layer but for most of Canada, the lower forty eight and other like climes, this hat will more than suffice.
You ears and the rest of your head will be very happy when the mercury drops. The gentle 'ribbing' along the hatband that covers the ears will snug just enough to keep you, oh so warm.

The holidays are coming up faster than you might think! They are always followed by frigid temp, blowing snow and the need for warm accessories. You are going to need some snugly warm hats and scarves for yourself and your family. Have you begun your Christmas / Holiday knitting yet. Are you ready for winter? Do you remember shopping last year, seeing all that lovely knitwear with those horrendously high prices? If you're like me you were thinking, if only I had the time, I could make that easily. . .
Well now's the time to get started. Grab those needles and get creative, start to work, you'll be glad you did. Start with one of the lovely patterns below.
I am a nurse by day for disabled school children, I design in yarn and write Knitting patterns. I also write children's books for reluctant reader with what time there is left. I was taught by my maternal grandmother to knit. Then came the Girl Scouts, my troop leaders pushed me to knit more seriously. I have been knitting off and on since.
Then, a few years ago I discovered **Knitting Haven,** a lovely little corner of the internet that encouraged me and allowed me to further flourish my needles.. There are some great ladies on that webpage. :-D Thanks Holly, no really, thank you .
My books and patterns are available both here and on Amazon through this link;
I try to keep the my pattern prices of as low as is realistic because as a knitter, I know I would much rather spend my precious funds on lots of lovely yarns. Those patterns that took me great mental gymnastics and much time ripping out, rethinking and redoing, will cost a bit more but for the most part, I think you find my patterns fairly priced.
Feel free to contact me through Craftsy or my author's page on Facebook, "Ann C, Cooney, author." I love hearing from fellow knitters. I will try to resolve confusion I may cause with typos or temporary lapses of sanity ;-) during my writing out of patterns.
