Meet Winston the Walrus. A sailor by trade, and cozy friend by calling. Every Summer he goes on holiday, traveling from the Bering Sea to the Chukchi Sea, eating as much clam chowder as he can get his fins on. As a native to Alaska, he never forgets his cap or his pipe.

Winston is my first pattern released as a part of Little Woolens, a collaboration between myself and Annie Rowden (byannieclaire). I am so excited to share with you this simple and unique design, a perfect quick knit for an animal lover or gift for a little one.

The hat color is completely up to you of course. You can easily make a “Wendy” instead of a “Winston” by choosing pink or purple or whatnot.

I hope you enjoy knitting Winston as much as I have. :) -Ashley
