Snow Drift Crochet Hat
You'll be totally prepared for winter with the Snow Drift Crochet Hat. We named it that because if you got stuck in a snow drift, the little pom pom on top of the hat would stick out so you could be rescued! The ice blue color of the yarn is perfect for winter wear and it's quick to work up as well. Made out of chunky yarn, you know it'll keep your head nice and warm when you're building snowmen, snow forts, and having snowball fights.
