A simple yet meditative checkerboard-esque pattern. A fun self-striping yarn. A weekend of fiber tourism. Check Your Head is the perfect pattern to work on as you zip from shop to shop, from knitting haven to knitting haven. Find or make a fun pompom for the top to extend the fun. This hat was originally designed for attendees of the 2018 Sheepish in Seattle trip with the Traveling Ewe.
