magpie darling hat {knit kit}


We are all swooning over the softness of Cashmere; it elevates and handmade gift you make for a friend, family or for yourself; add sparkle and it instantly becomes a WOW!  Indulge, knit a Cashmere and sparkle hat. And, as if Cashmere wasn't enough, new Mohair Tweed & Sherpa are now options.  I have never seen tweed mohair, and it is a.m.a.z.i.n.g! It is fuzzy, tweedy and mixed with the sequins, it's is on point! A total must make.
