Novemberist Hat

Purchase Pattern:

The Novemberist hat is part of a hat and mitt set dreamed up during an especially memorable November. Made in two high-contrast colorways, this hat is doubly thick throughout with a turned hem and a chevron stitch pattern achieved by stranded knitting—both features that make this hat very warm while being equally stylish!
