UHURA is a hat that is rustic and fururistic alike thanks to robust tweed yarn and an intersting not-your-everyday-hat design. The uneven edge forms tiny concave tips that nevertheless do the trick to keep your ears warm but avoid the hat to slip over your eyes – the perfect solution for all who find earflaps a bit too folkloristic.
The colour range of the original yarn inspired me to a shipload of hats – just have a look at the pictures to give you an idea of the endless possibilities for your personal UHURA hat!
