I am always in search of the perfect winter hat. It doesn’t get much better than a cozy ribbed brim with squishy aran weight wool held together with mohair silk. Holding a strand of lace weight mohair together with wool adds a lovely soft and glowing halo to the textured fabric. Pick your favorite color to knit this quick project for you or a loved one.
