With a great selection of hats/head accessories, this week's designer has patterns that make a great transition from chilly wintery winds to crisp, springtime mornings.

First, I'll show you the wintery stuff.

The picture is of the very pretty Reversible Smocked Hat. I'm keen on it for a few reasons: one of which is the reversibility. I love the just-the-right-amount of slouch, and I've been known to squeal in delight at pom poms. I'm a simple being, sometimes.

The Amazon Stripe Beanie is a really cool, unique-looking hat. With a nifty cinched part, and simple lines of ridges, the texture just pounces on you. This makes for a great March/April hat.

Lastly, I'll point you to the Parisian Twist Headband. This ear warmer is simply elegant: a nice wrap-over twist makes an easy-level project look technically tricky, and gives you a fantastic accessory that can carry you from winter to spring.
