UPDATE: There is now a video tutorial for the Dot Stitch here:

A little silly, a little hippie-ish, this hat is named after our favorite local eco-café (Back to the Roots) where it was photographed and partially inspired. A simple hat with a quirky brim and some subtle texture throughout- work in two similar colorways for a blend-y effect or solid/with contrasting colors for something more bold. Bonus points if you can say the name without mentally adding “-tooty fresh and fruity” (I can’t.)

Note on the yardage: You could probably get the hat out of one skein of Tosh if you weren’t striping, though you might not have enough for the ornamentation.
