One of the last great migrations on earth happens twice a year across the vast tundra, sand dunes, and rivers of Kobuk Valley.   Every spring and fall, nearly a quarter million caribou make the 600 mile trek between their northern and southern grounds, just as they have for 9000 years – criss-crossing the dunes and swimming across the Kobuk River.   With just the right colors and the magic of knitting, you can recreate this amazing scene from the bottom up. A couple dozen caribou will migrate across your hat in the spring and then back the other direction in the fall, swimming in the Kobuk River as they go with the sand dunes looming in the distance
