The last few winters here in Saskatchewan have been unbelievably cold and snowy. My sister asked for a hat that would keep her cozy on her walk to work. Not only is this toque stylish, the stitch pattern combined with bulky wool makes this hat super thick and virtually
impenetrable. Wool is a great insulator in itself, but the design of this hat will trap warm air between the layers and keep you toasty all season. The brim can be knit longer and folded over for even more warmth in sub zero temperatures.
