The Zoe hat is simple, trendy and a truly posh accessory that a beginner should be able to complete. It could be worn as a slouchy or a beanie, just fold the ribbing if you prefer closer-fitting hat. Using Moonshine, a luxurious alpaca/wool/silk blend gives this hat an elegant and warm finish. Add a big fur pompom for an extra feminine touch. 4" faux OnLine Pompom with snap, 6" faux fur Rowan Pompom with ribbon & 6" real fur Schildkraut Pompom with ribbon now available.
