Ice River hat

Description

The Ice River Hat is knit in the round and uses a beautiful bulky yarn, making it squishy and fast: the ideal “quick win” or last-minute gift.

The perfect companion to the Ice River Snood, this hat captures the same sense of frozen movement and grace. The Ice River lace pattern looks a bit like cabling, but is simple and easy to memorise: just interesting enough to make it addictive. The result is lovely, warm, and squishy. You’ll want to wear it out every day, whether you’re going hiking, meeting friends in town for a holiday drink, or just heading to work on a frosty morning.
