Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit

  • knitting in the round

Pattern Description:

This hat pattern was inspired by the wild horses living on Sable Island.

While I've never had the pleasure of seeing Sable Island in person, I have been lucky enough to see Sable Island Horses at Shubenacadie Wildlife Park (the only other place in the world that these beautiful animals can be found outside of Sable Island). So it is kind of cool to make a hat as unique as these wonderful creatures.
