It’s Friday again so time for another new hat pattern! This time it’s a fun knit… the Sheep Hog, whether its a sheep or a hedgehog is completely up to you.
This hat is knit in DK weight yarn, the samples were knit in Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend (hedgehog) and Rico Design Merino DK (sheep) but you could use any Dk or light worsted yarn, even acrylic as due to the nature of the bobbly fabric this hat needs very little (or no) blocking on completion.
Sheep hog is knit from the bottom up, in the round, in one piece except for the optional ears which are knitted separately and then sewn on afterwards. The pattern includes sizes from baby all the way up to large adult, so you could make one for every member of your family!
The pattern is available to purchase here, and as always if you do decide to knit your own version I would love to see it.
