Keeping your ears warm can be a challenge during a polar vortex! This bulky knit hat has a garter stitch band to block the wind and keep your ears warm in the coldest of weather. The matching mittens in the companion pattern will keep your fingers toasty as well. Better knit up several sets for the next blast of cold!

Simple Latvian designs decorate the upper part of the hat. These small designs add a special touch and are a great way to practice your stranded knitting without committing to a big project.
