snuggery (n.) - a snug place or position; a comfortable or cozy room.

In 2021, I’m focusing my pattern designs on things that make me happy or that I wish for my fellow knitters. I hope this cozy, warm hat becomes a portable snuggery for you, a place where you can feel a little bit more safe and snug no matter where you are. Knit in a plush worsted-weight wool with squishy slip stitch panels to add layers of warmth and columns of dancing eyelets to prevent you from overheating, this hat is the perfect accessory for keeping you comfortable through the remainder of the cold wintry months.
