N.B.: This is a pattern for older children and adults (see finished sizes). For a baby’s size sheep hat, please refer to Welcome to the Flock

This pattern came about as a collaboration with my son who thought the hat I wanted to knit for him with some cute sheep on it needed some wolves for good measure. What followed was a lively discussion about how many wolves could be allowed to run among the sheep. Accordingly, the pattern is written to allow knitters to include or exclude as many wolves as their sensibilities allow.

The sample shown is 22.5”, and used 140 yards of the main color, Chai, and 50 yards of each of the contrast colors, Cocoa and Cream.
