Nothing says winter to a northerner quite like fresh snowfall and a hot drink in hand. The light, fluffy flakes can make the whole world feel like a snow globe, and the picturesque landscape of Alaska’s mountains and rivers certainly don’t detract from that vision. This hat is inspired by the spicy scents at Alaska’s own Kobuk Coffee Co., where cinnamon, clove, and orange from their signature tea mingle with the stronger richness of freshly ground coffee. Similar, perhaps, to how the speckles in Madelinetosh’s Modern Fair Isle mingle with fluffy laceweight mohair to journey along the knits and purls to create their own rich and textured landscape. Grab a hot tea and pop this cozy hat on your head to keep warm, and go walking in your own winter wonderland!
Materials: Kobuk is knit holding 2 yarns together- one DK weight merino wool and one lace weight mohair to create a super-soft, warm fabric with a lovely halo.
