Inspired by the trails that sleds (and skis!) carve in freshly fallen snow, the Sledding Trails Hat features the rich texture of traditional twisted stitches offset by panels of twisted ribbing. The folded brim offers extra warmth for everyone in the family, even during the coldest sledding adventures.

This unisex hat is worked in one piece from the brim upward and features an optional pom-pom. The folded brim lies flat thanks to the use of turning rounds. Worsted-weight merino yarn ensures both warmth and softness against the skin.
