Tembo is the Swahili word for elephant, and the slouchy Tembo hat is a parade of pachyderms! A slight variation of traditional fair isle, the hat is worked in the round with elephants in profile around a central elephant face. Use bright colors to recreate the whimsey of a circus, or go soft and subtle to emphasize your love of these wonderful creatures.
