Polka Dot Sheep’s Stumptown DK is the perfect yarn for this project. It’s a super-soft, superwash merino yarn with great stitch definition and inspiring colors. All Polka Dot Sheep yarns are hand-dyed with love in Whitefish, Montana.

Hungry Horse is knit in the round from the brim up. The charming blend of garter stitch and mesh is easily memorized making this project great for social or travel knitting. I think you’ll enjoy knitting this hat as much as wearing it.

The pattern is conveniently written in 4 sizes and all measurements are given in US and metric.
