A wool cap is a comforting essential, even on mild winter days. Christa’s design for a simple winter cap plays with color and texture. The shaping for the cap, which tapers toward the back of the head, makes it wearable beneath a hood or fit comfortably when bundled in a high-collared parka. Cormo wool makes this hat clingy without being hair flattening. The luster of silk defines the stitches.
