To celebrate the launch of Sarma Hat, the pattern is 20% off until midnight PST February 4. Discount is applied automatically at the checkout, no coupon code needed.

Sarma Hat is designed as a part of the set with Sarma mittens, also available in my Ravelry store.
Pattern is worked in wool and mohair held together for extra warmth and gently marled effect. Hat features a twig-like pattern with crochet bobbles, which are done in mohair only.
Sample shows the hat in size 1.

Sarma means hoarfrost in Latvian and the design has been inspired by wintry magic and the still, white and intricate beauty of hoarfrost as I remember it from my childhood back in Latvia. It’s my tiny love song to winter in wool
