Migration Hat


Wrap yourself in some tartan and snuggle up on a sleigh ride. Easily a favourite, this classic hat is extra warm and comfy. The traditional aran style is fun to knit and looks gorgeous.

Watch your stitches gently migrate with this lovely cabled pattern. The hat has a thick ribbed brim and sits a little bit high, just for fun.

This hat is knit from the brim to the crown in one piece with an aran weight yarn and a small pom pom. This hat has one size and no visible seam.
