  • Warmth - Hat


    About Warmth

    The Warmth hat originated from one of Hanna Lisa’s all-time favorite hats for Aurin: a very dear friend of hers from Finland gifted it to them after they were born, and they lived in it their first winter. It had an all-over textured pattern, fit super well and was topped off with a pompom. Warmth was designed with those features in mind, and Hanna Lisa added in a few more that she thought would make it really fun to knit!

    Warmth features an intuitive, easy-to-memorise stitch pattern and increase lines that continue right down into the ribbing. It’s worked top down – Hanna Lisa’s new favorite hat construction! – which means you can try it on as you knit to determine the right hat length for your little one.
