Merrick pays homage to traditional chullos’ bright colors and fine gauges with a hat knit in Koigu Wool Designs’ KPM. Checkers, birds and arrows join the vivid array of colorwork motifs. The earflaps are made first and joined to the brim’s interior. Pompom-trimmed ties embellish the earflaps and crown.

Colorways used are #P1230 medium gold (A), #P1500 turquoise (B), #P2170 dark navy (C), #P1520 lime green (D), #P1521 bright yellow (E) and #P1400 purple (F).
