Perfect for on-the-go knitting, Polaris knits up quickly with just a single skein of Swans Island’s Dip Dyed merino wool. For anyone who needs a quick gift or just wants a project that doesn’t require too much brain power, the Polaris Hat fits the bill. Worked in 2 x 2 ribbing in the round, our Dip Dyed merino creates its own stunning colorwork pattern without you actually having to do any colorwork. Written in four sizes, you can knit Polaris for all ages. Fold up the brim to make more of a beanie or wear it straight as shown.
