A warm double layer hat, ideally suited to long colour-gradation yarns
This supremely insulated, double layer hat or headband features surprising colour effects. The exterior colour never appears on the inside of the hat. It was designed during a spell of cold weather at Steamboat Springs, CO, when warm ears would have been most welcome.
The newly updated version of this hat features an alternate double-knit crown and unique topper, which I have dubbed the "Space Cadet Stalk and Top"
