This winter wardrobe staple was inspired by the hat that the character Johanne is wearing in the Norwegian television series "Hjem til jul" (engl. "Home for Christmas"). With its simple 2x2 rib and the tree layer brim, it is elegant, timeless and super warm.

JOHANNE hat comes in 8 sizes and is a very easy and mindless knit that is perfectly suited for beginner knitters. I have been wearing this hat non-stop since I made it and it might be my favorite of all the hats I made so far.
