Hungry Horse Hat Kit
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 making this hat as much as wearing it.
The pattern is conveniently written in 4 sizes and all measurements are given in US and metric.
- one half skein plus two mini skeins of Stumptown DK
