Falling leaves are one of the first signs of Autumn, and one of the most loved symbols of the season. There’s something nostalgic about their gentle beauty, as they begin to decorate the ground when the weather cools down. When it gets cool outside, the need for cozy knitted hats arises, too! The Autumn Oak hat is a great way to ring in the season, with plush and warm Posh Alpaca yarn and a beautiful leaf motif decorating the design.
