Knit with plump Merino Alpaca and downy Silk Cloud, No. 12 is a must-have accessory for chilly winter climes. The cozy hood fits under a coat and provides insulation from insidious breezes on even the coldest days. A plush waffle stitch pattern provides interesting texture and extra warmth. Begun in the round, then worked similarly to a sock heel, the unique construction is a great way to practice a variety of techniques.
