Pairing the luxe combo of silk and alpaca with the funky texture of mohair, this hat is sure to turn heads and raise temperatures wherever you go. Worked in two pieces, each with two strands of yarn held together, and combining knitting flat and knitting in the round, we finished off this fresh topper with extra large pom pom to insure you leave a lasting impression.

So get ready to perk up those grey winter days with this bold, cozy knitting project!
