GINGER TWIST STUDIO

CHAI HAT KIT

£25.00

Chai

I love nothing more than to curl up with a cup of hot chai, it warms my heart and soul, making me blissfully happy. This hat captures the relaxing and comforting sense that chai tea gives me, a warm hug of softness with a touch of spice. Gorgeously warm Alpaca and a chunky cable, what’s not to love? Cleverly knitted inside out, to minimise purling this pretty hat knits up in no time. Available in three sizes.

The tea: Masala Chai is traditionally brewed with black tea leaves and a mixture of spices including green cardamom pods, cinnamom sticks, ground cloves, ginger and black peppercorns. I prefer to drink mine with the South African tea Rooibos. Check out my blog for my favourite spiced chai recipe.
