Would the holidays be complete without a sweet peppermint candy cane? We think not! Their striking stripes are a seasonal staple and serve as inspiration for this cozy hat. The comfy folded brim will keep you especially warm during a nighttime stroll through the neighborhood as you admire the brilliant Christmas lights that decorate the homes and streets.
