Intertwined diamonds that come to a point bring to mind a compass, leading you due north.

Worked at a gauge perfect for the coldest of temperatures, the cozy fit and interesting cable motif combine for a stellar hat you will want with you all season.

This is the second pattern released as part of the Shades of Winter collection, a collaboration with Luna Grey Fiber Arts. Kits for the Due North hat (yarn + pattern) are available through Luna Grey here: Due North Kits
