Twisted Candy Hat
Introducing you to my newest shop addition. This hat has to be one of the most snuggly hats I have ever made. The yarn is from an upcycled sweater and I dyed it, originally it was white. You can read a bit more about that in the item description.
There is a bit of a funny story to the pattern. As I have mentioned before I have fellow volunteers here in the valley and a few of us were teaching one of them how to knit a hat. We started her with a 2 by 2 ribbing pattern, but as she got about half way up the hat we noticed that it was swirling because she had one extra stitch, and it looked fabulous! So with her permission I used her accidental discovery for this snuggly cap.
Also today I posted a new poll - cast your vote!
