You might think a lady who grows her own wool wouldn’t need winter accessories–but you simply could not be more wrong. When the cold wind begins to blow snow into every crevice, Dolores likes to wrap her herself in something warm. And if Jason Momoa is not available, that something is a cheerful scarf and coordinating hat. No less a color work authority than Mary Jane Mucklestone fashioned this whimsical, extra-long stocking cap swirling with classic motifs. And since Dolores is not afraid to mix patterns, it’s paired with a festive candy striped scarf that’s both quick to knit and fun to wear. Now she’s ready for anything–a sleigh ride, a snowball fight, or even just waiting outside Jason Momoa’s house with a sign that says LET’S CUDDLE.
