Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate? When it's really cold outside, nothing is as wonderful as getting - and staying - warm. This stranded hat doubles the insulation so you're toasty all the way to your next hot drink; three of the mugs that surround your head are even steaming! Slipped stitch stripes create a little lift over one eye if you wish, or you can rotate the hat to celebrate the name of your favourite beverage. A warm sun (or melting marshmallow, or perhaps a dollop of whipped cream?) tops it all off. Winter doesn't get better than this.
