Colder weather means it’s time for warm woolens, and what better way to adorn them than with snowflakes? This stranded colorwork hat is worked from brim to crown, using mini-skeins and different sized snowflakes to create a gradient effect. It is the perfect complement to the Frosted sweater, and doubles as a gauge swatch for the pullover. The Frosted Top may look cool, but it’s sure to keep you warm and cozy all winter long.
