Minnesota is cold and is known for having two seasons: winter and road construction. Everyone needs a new winter hat (sometimes you need several), especially when you can coordinate it with the Nice-capades sweater from Minnesota 52: 16 knits inspired by the road. Knit this one up to match or in a variety of colors for all of your outdoor activities.
