Sprocket Hat by Pip & Pin Collective | The Sprocket Hat is an engaging way to combine yarns to knit a colourful stripey hat. Slipped stitches create the sprocket "teeth" colourwork, and are a fun and easy way to change colours while adding some interesting detail to the pattern. This is the perfect pattern for using with a five colour mini skein set, or to scrap bust those tiny bits of beautiful leftover yarns. Knit in the round from the brim to the crown and topped with a floofy pom pom, this fun hat will fly off your needles in no time. Available in sizes for the whole family.
