Army of Knitters Garnet Hat and Hairband Pattern by Heather Dixon.
Precious. Linger a while over a glass of mulled wine. Dance beside the roaring flames of an open fireplace. Taste the warming flavours of a berry flambe. Envelope yourself in layers of rich, deep jewell tones.
Because baby, it's cold outside.
