This warm and cozy hat features a lacy brim, baltic braid trim, and a geometric Lithuanian design that represents the sun. In winter, there is not much sunshine and thoughts of long, warm summer days are important to keep up morale during the cold dark months. The hat is knit on larger needles than the matching mittens, making it softer and stretchier, but no less warm. The unused color is stranded across the back of the work, creating a two-layer fabric that will block the wind.
