The whorl that inspired this hat was made by the Sami people of the Arctic Scandinavian region, and noall’te is a Sami word for spindle whorl. The flat whorl, etched with lines and dots radiating from the shaft hole, called out to be a jaunty colorwork beret (accompanied by a Scandinavian-inspired pair of mittens!) The yarn, Classic Elite MountainTop Vista, comes only in natural, undyed shades, perfectly reminiscent of the stone whorls of the Sami.
