Everyone living in a big city knows this dilemma – how do I get from point A to point B? Cars are always a problem – for obvious reasons – and public transport? Not always reliable.

Vienna is too big to cover distances by foot. But it’s still small enough to get everywhere on a bike in a reasonable amount of time. But what to do when it gets colder, and the icy air freezes your ears? Well, we’ve got a knitterly solution right here!

This hat has an extra thick band to keep your ears warm even against the chilly wind as you cruise around town.

The multiple options included in this one pattern provide endless possiblities: choose from 2 sizes, 2 styles (slouchy or beanie), 2 fabrics (lacy or opaque), and even choose the direction of the spoke-like swirl (clockwise or counterclockwise).

The beanie can be worn under a helmet, while the slouchy hat is a stylish accessory perfect for a long walk or a hiking tour.
