Hearth and Snow is a memory of Winter. The home fires are burning, candles are lit, and hot chocolate is in hand; while outside the snow fairies are falling on a magical, white wonderland.

With its cable, twisted rib, and slipped stitches, this squishy hat is a fun and entertaining pattern for the advanced knitter, yet perfect for the beginner wishing to learn new techniques.

Available in two diameter sizes as well as three lengths!
