I designed this hat design during a brutally cold and windy English winter. They are lovely and cozy, ideal for keeping you warm and the cold wind off your ears! Knitted with a super soft chunky yarn they have a lovely fit, with an eye catching spiral pattern on the crown. This detailing makes the hat very comfortable, and it can be worn snuggly to the head or loosely to show off the spiral design.
