This hat was inspired by the beautiful land and seascapes of Juneau, Alaska. While spending time there as winter approached, I realized quickly that my ears were very cold in normal beanie hats; I was desperate for something thick to snuggle my ears! Thus, the Juneau hat was born. The fair isle pattern reflects the mountainous islands in the bay, or sound, with the mountain sides ending at the ocean shore. The ear flaps represent one shore, looking over waves, then across to another mountain across the bay.
