10. Pook Transformer Hat and Matching Mitts

It’s multifunctional and totally reversible! With unlimited styling options, (comes with its very own style flow chart kit page) this toque is far more than a hat. It’s a sculpture for your head, a public icebreaker, and a sensory deprivation tool. Matching mitts also available, although they only keep your hands warm, no fancy transforming there.
