Years ago, Polka Dot Sheep teamed up with Kendra Hope to create Loch Lomond finger-less mittens. Today, we've added a hat to compliment the mitts.
This unisex hat is knit in the round from the bottom up in four sizes baby through adult. For personal preference, the cable motif is charted and written, and all measurements are given in Imperial and metric.
