Every morning I walk or run in the great northeastern outdoors and as winter has settled down around us I have found I needed a much warmer hat to keep the chill from the ocean at bay! The brim of this hat has a soft and cozy Cashgora liner over the ears and is then knit up in a compact two color brioche to keep even the strongest winter winds at bay!
