Purchase the Badlands Hat together with the Badlands Mitts for $7.50. No coupon code necessary. You can put both in your cart at once or if you’ve previously purchased the other pattern just add this one to your cart and it will discount the price so that the total paid for both together equals $7.50.

Simple slipped stitch patterning gives this hat the perfect amount of texture. It’s a great option for not just solid and semi-solid yarns but for variegated, self-striping, and hand painted ones as well.
