Here in the Southern Hemisphere, we’re heading into winter, and what better way to get cozy than by indulging in rich cable textures! I designed this hat whilst dreaming of walking through snow-speckled woods, and it’s sure to keep you warm on your adventures too.

I didn’t want to stop there though, and also created a matching cowl pattern for this hat! As a RAVELRY ONLY special, you can enjoy a price of just $7 USD for both patterns if purchased as a set. (Discount applied automatically, no coupon code needed. Additional charges may be added to your cart depending on your location, and please note that Ravelry’s checkout can only process 1 discount per transaction.) Find the Tree Climber Cowl pattern here.
