Timeless, classical form, ears perfectly covered, comfort and a little cuteness! Minimalism blends with practicality and texture, while addition of mohair thread makes this hat amazingly soft and fluffy.
Trivia fact: the hat’s name comes from charming shells of sea snail Trivia. Their shape reminds me of the stitch pattern used in this design!
The pattern contains detailed instructions for making the sweater in 3 sizes and two language versions – Polish and English.
