Hats are a necessity here in Edmonton where it drops to -30C or colder in the winter. Even autumn and spring mornings are chilly enough to grab a beanie before heading out for the day. Between my hat-obsessed hubby and I, we have a fairly large hat collection. 

Not only do hats keep us warm, but they’re also a quick rewarding project! Depending on the hat’s complexity and the type of yarn you’re working with, you can whip one up in 3-10 hours. By comparison to larger projects (like a sweater that takes 80-100 hours on average), that’s a pretty quick turnaround from cast-on to bind-off.
